Svendborg Beach

We enjoyed our trip west from Copenhagen to Svendborg for two nights. It was a nice break from the City and as a coastal town commonly does, we got to visit the beach.

We borrowed some bikes and hit the streets. It was a short ride to the beach and as luck would have it, it was one of the warmest days they have had in awhile, so we weren't the only ones with the idea.
So when we arrived it felt a little more crowded than I expected and got busier as the day went on. The beach was very nice and the sand reminded me a bit of Oregon. There was no terrain to speak of and it is fairly far inland, so no waves to speak of except when a ship rolls by and creates them for us. It didn't seem like the ships had to be that significant either,

Geske and Lau joined us a little later and enjoyed some lunch with us. The Danish love their ice cream (so do Oregonians) and hot dogs and it seems like in every snack bar that combination is bound to be present in some form. I think it is in the U.S. as well, but perhaps it is just that we're choosing to eat them here more than I would have expected.

Geske was the star of the show when she helped Abby catch a crab. We had a lot of un with the jellyfish as well, but the crab resulted in some major squeals and excitement.

Our ride back from the beach was nice although after a few hours of soaking in the rays, I was ready for a shower and some time in the shade.
