orienteering (Gribskov model) 47:00 [2] 3.7 km (12:42 / km)
shoes: Inov8 Oroc spikes

It had rained overnight and the forest was rather damp & humid, also with lots of brashings, plus patches of head-high bracken, and nettles which I safely avoided, but this was a fairly desultory jog, often a walk, primarily to see whether I could get a bit better at identifying each & every one of those darn rides which are individually mapped. (Annoyingly, I tweaked my ankle, which was probably karma for having added my two cents' worth to the AP JWOC sprint thread despite it really not being any of my business...). Definitely hope the forest is nicer than this tomorrow!

Anyhow, it turned into a gloriously sunny day, perfect for drying the washing, and also for visiting Nakkehoved Fyr, the lighthouse on the headland just east of town, where there is an interesting museum which is kind of a history of Denmark's lighthouses and has great views towards Sweden. Also it has a weather station, to keep Blairs happy :)

Gilleleje is such a great little town. The yachts in the harbour have flags from Sweden, Norway, Germany and the Netherlands, as well as Denmark of course. Nowhere else have I encountered a crab tank on the wharf, which is there purely for the purpose of allowing kids with nets to come along, scoop them out, insert them into the top of the wooden crab-race and watch them scuttle back down into the tank. I reckon Briohny's boys would love this!
