Morning swim

Early in the morning in Varberg, you can catch a fascinating parade of colours
as residents rise from their beds, blearily pull on their favourite bathrobes (badrock
in Swedish) and pad down to the pier for
a ritualistic early morning dip.
No one is certain of where the tradition came from, but throughout the year locals continue to start their day with just the
right mix of sea air, cold water, terry cloth
and friendly faces.
