Be a Seal!

Are you looking for an adventure? Good swimmers, listen up! Drive to the Marine Room in La Jolla Shores. There is public beach access on the east side of the restaurant. Swim to La Jolla Cove. You can stop there and walk back or make a return swim. The current and swim fins help to make the swim relatively easy. Wear a wetsuit for warmth and buoyancy.

Borgen

Borgen, a political drama about Denmark is on Netflix. Everything about it is top drawer. It is on my top three list of streaming series!

I have been re-watching the Danish series Borgen. The story centers around a woman who tries to juggle being a wife and mother with her job as Prime Minister. Sidse Babett Knudsen, the acclaimed Danish actress, plays the prime minister, Birgitte Nyborg, and she is superb. The rest of the cast delivers excellent performances, though it is Knudsen who sets the tone of the series. Borgen gives viewers insight into a political system different than our own though the process of politics which drives the system is universal. The series is realistic and gritty and hard to stop watching.
