Of course, then I checked the tide calendar and saw that I would have only about two hours for bathing, and if I took a ferry out to one of the islands, like Norderney, the trip would take so long that I'd have 10 hours of traveling altogether for 3 hours on the island. *sigh*
My sister got some police action for Thursday right the minute I texted her to ask if she'd like to go to the lake, which just shows that I am bad luck, and my brother a date with his dentist. And of course, it will get colder again after Thursday...
But maybe there will just be another hot day or two this year, and I could go to the coast and spend a night on Borkum or Langeoog.
Anyway, enough whining about the weather - what I actually wanted to do was to squee about my incredible luck at AiA for which I received the BESTEST STORY EVAR OMG! 22000 words of absolutely riveting Legolas/Gorfindel, which was all the things I love love love and is really about Legolas coming into his own. The way he grows is just lovely, as is his voice. ♥
