Day 4, CopenhagenSeptember 4 in Denmark
So we had to set our alarm last night to make sure we didn’t miss the 10am dock this morning. We were up and about at 8am and headed to the deck for breakfast rather than the dining room. No Lemon Danishes and we’re in Denmark !!. Never mind, the muffins were a good substitute. As we didn’t dock until 10am, we went to the front of the ship and watched the approach and dock. We just glided in, all nice and peaceful. We were able to pick landmarks out from when I worked here and our visits to Jens & Eva’s.
Usually when we dock here we are off the ship and we walk up in to Nyhavn which is a very pretty, colourful harbour where Hans Christian Anderson lived. This time we berthed at a dock that was much further out which meant we had to get a bus in. It was a little bit of a pain but I guess that’s because we are used to doing it the other way. So we got the bus which dropped us of at Nyhavn (means New Harbour I believe), traffic was a nightmare but we went past the apartment I used to have when I worked out here and it fetched a few memories back. We had a wander around and stopped for some lunch and a pint in the sun. We then had a wander through the city and out to Tivoli Gardens at the other side. The weather was tremendous and it was a lovely walk. We wandered around at the other side of the city before making our way back leisurely and finally catching the shuttle bus back to the ship. The number of cyclists still amaze me, they are everywhere.
Once back on board we had the obligatory snack or two followed by tea and cake before grabbing a bit of a granny nap while Sharon watched the end of some documentary about some ballet dancer. Once that was done we headed out and spent a couple of hours in the hot tub watching the sun go down, it was lovely, beautiful clear skies, nice temperature and fairly quiet. I have however detected a few brats on board, not caused us to much bother yet, hope they don’t, they make an awful noise when you have to drown them 😂😂.
Next we decided we would go to our cabin and watch “London has Fallen”. It’s a film we never saw but always wanted to mainly due to it being based in London. I’ve trawled Netflix, Amazon etc and it’s gone so was going to buy it but it’s on the demand TV in the cabin. Wow, what a great film, we both really enjoyed it. We did say we wasn’t going to do dinner tonight, and to be fair we didn’t go to the restaurant, but after the film finished we popped upstairs to the deck just to get a cuppa and watch us leave Copenhagen. Well, there was pork loins, potatoes, fish bites, all sorts really so bugger it, we had some, oh and more pink cake 🍰.
It’s 10.45pm now, just polishing off the cake and we’re waiting to depart for Skagen. Sat out at the back of the ship, pleasant temperature and a perfect end to a lovely day.
Until tomorrow peeps 👍Read more
