The weather has since October been really gloomy with very little sun. It seems most of Europe experienced a very grey November 2014. Duffer climate?
It is still comparatively mild weather. This fall I have so far only seen snow once.
I haven't been to the sea for some years, and December may not seem like the ideal season for a visit. Currently, I am visiting a sea side town on the Swedish West Coast. The other day the weather was really nice, even if the wind was chilly. We went down to one part of the coast that has a very rocky "beach", right next to an old stone quarry. I did not take a swim. These two pics were taken at same time, the first facing NNW, the second SSW.
