Kastrup Bathing Platform (by KAP Cris)
This new bathing structure is situated 50 meters or so off the beach in Kastrup just south of Copenhagen. The water is clean and refreshing and the whole place is alive with kids and adults swimming and jumping off a five-meter platform.
I have to go here
For nearly thirty years I have lived along this river, the great Hudson. When I was young I spent warm days down on Nyack Beach watching the boats and the traffic on the Tappan Zee Bridge. There were even days when my cousins and I would brave the dank polluted waters and swim (don’t tell my mother). As a teenager I crossed the river to get to school everyday so I could learn and grow. After college I moved to mighty Manhattan, only a few blocks from the East River but the Hudson had my heart still. When I got married a moved up north only a short walk away from my old friend. I now take leisurely strolls down to her banks to take in her beauty. I ride the length of her by train every day and every night. The tides ebb and flow but still she remains. She welcomed our love and our refuse with grace. We’ve spent generations underestimating her worth and power but now that the years of neglect are melting away I find myself drawn to her even more. I honor her grace. I honor her beauty. I honor her perseverance. She is my river. She is my friend.
