Relaxing at the Beach

Today is the fourth day of 80 degree weather and it has been a welcomed four days! We open Blume a week from today, so our rehearsals are quite long right now as we tidy things up and put the tech together with the staging; so it was nice to get away for a few hours and just soak up the sun! The beach was beautiful, but so crowded.....We got there a little bit after 10 am today and already parking was scarce. By the time we left this afternoon the parking lot was completely filled and people were having to park a 10 minute walk from the beach. The beaches are very nice here, and I believe it is because there is an entrance fee, much like the fee to get into a national forest or park in the United States.

This was not a nude beach, nor a topless beach......but we saw both of these activities take place while we were there. Apparently it is custom to change your clothes once you arrive at the beach, on the beach. And I learned a smart trick to keeping warm on the beach while also being able to go in the water. Bring a second swimsuit, which is to be kept dry and change in to it once you are done swimming. Very smart.

All in all it was very relaxing to lay in the sun on the shore of the Baltic sea :)
