It is a very good exercise to go up the steps of the lighthouse to get this amazing view over the seaside and Blåvands area. Yesterday I did it with my husband Mathias and today I took twice the opportunity to get up for free. The musicians playing on their accordions and flute made it easier to go up too.

In the late afternoon the wind dropped and it was lovely to be outside. On my way home from the beach to the station I sighted a Northern wheatear (see picture). Henrik told me it is a very early sighting here.

You can’t get all. So we missed Jørgen Grønne who brought an Easter cake for us. Thank you.
