Awoke to clear blue skies – no not strictly true. We had in fact been awake most of the night coughing in unison. This virus is really nasty, no wonder Ollie has been poorly for nearly 3 weeks. We were sitting on our balcony at 3 in the morning , hardly dark, watching other boats going our way but much slower.

Mike went up for breakfast whilst I still tried to get some sleep before going ashore at lunchtime. No chance!

We booked a coach tour and canal tour of Copenhagen and it was beautiful. A lovely city –, very clean but overrun with bikes going every which way. I would hate to drive here.

Our coach driver was a handsome blue eyed blonde and our guide- wasn’t!


First stop was of course The Little Mermaid -


Strangely tucked away from the town and not too overwhelming it has to be said.

We drove around the town past various historical buildings and everywhere looked very clean and tidy. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and it was getting hotter by the minute. Although we were sitting right behind the driver it was difficult to get any great photos as the reflection from the glass and the huge wing mirrors got in the way. Let me see what I can find worth showing -



Then it was down to the canal boat


Lots of very low narrow bridges to navigate



Houseboats moored on both sides of the canals



An old lightship



Back on land just time to visit the Winter Palace where the Queen of Denmark stays only in the winter. We watched the changing of the guard – not quite like it is in London



Mike in front of a huge yacht – aptly named.

Back on the coach – and pleased to be. and then to put our feet up.
