A sunny weekend was appreciated by everyone and it seemed like all citizens were out and about in Viborg today. We wandered towards town, exploring some places not yet visited. The warmer weather had helped some pretty spectacular, fairy tale, fungi to sprout overnight. ‘Fly Poison Amanita’ (amanitamuscaria) was absolutely everywhere.
We see Asmild Kirke every day as we ride the bus to school. The church was established around 1090 and is truly authentic, in appearance and feel, especially when one sees the priests, dressed in their full regalia. Hans Christian Anderson visited (he seems to have spent a night or three in most places in Denmark) and stayed. It was great to see some students from school preparing to sing in the choir.

We walked around the lake and had lunch in the park. Kate is addicted to ristet hotdogs and the girls and I were happy to oblige her habit. We stopped and read. Lucy has started ‘The Hobbit’ and I finished ‘A Dance with Dragons’.
Who would have guessed that a ‘Lions Club’ would be in Denmark. Not I.
We bumped into several people we know today, which was nice. Here’s Marianne’s gorgeous dog.
We came home and I mowed the lawn. It has not rained at all for two days which must be the first time since we arrived in Denmark, or so it feels. Like all Danes, I think I’ve become slightly obsessed with the weather.
