Copenhagen, DDC and Ice Bar

Today, Vlada and I took the train from Sorgenfri to Copenhagen in the morning. We arrived at the main train station, then visited the Danish Design Center (DDC). On the lower floor was an exhibit on Classic Danish Design, spanning the years from 1945 to the present.

In the afternoon we walked in Osters park had tea at a swe
et small coffee place called Granola, not far from Fredericksburg. Later that afternoon Liz and the kids met us there and we headed to the Copenhagen Ice Bar.

Auburn, November 2011 (2/2)

Yesterday, two days after Thanksgiving, we first walked the dogs to the lake. After lunch, Vlada and I went for a walk in the snow. We started along the path along the house, had to cross a few streams in the woods behind the house and continued on a loop trail, following tracks left in the snow by people (hunters probably). We ended up on Lake Road and walked back home.

We then borrowed Katarina's car and went for a drive to
Whitings Farm on Summer Road, where we strolled in the heated greenhouses admiring the beautiful poinsettias. We drove on to Wallmart where we picked up a few things. We then came home to make apple strudel with the last apples from the garden. We drank eggnog, watched the sunset and had dinner of Thanksgiving dinner leftovers.
