Saturday 28 April
A warm dry day with a gentle, if cool breeze – could it really be Spring at last? My crew left me quiet in harbour to take in a little sightseeing, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Copenhagen is a smaller, more grown-up Amsterdam: canals, interesting architecture, history, a royal family and an endless choice of eating and drinking. For once they were in the right place at the right time, for at least two festivals and a selection of live music if they had only had enough energy.
They even found a good supermarket to stock up on some essential provisions. Mate caught a little sunshine before the day clouded over a little, and the only hitch was missing the bus connection on the way home, and having to sit in a relatively quiet café to while away the hour until the next one.
