The sky isn’t always blue in Denmark

A few rays of sunshine, but it wasn’t comparable to September last year.
Esrum Lake is Denmark’s second largest lake.
The lake is shaped like a large bathtub with deep slopes not far from the width and a large relatively flat bottom. It is formed during the last ice age, probably because a large ice block has been left on site.

International Mother Earth Day 2017

Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children.

On My Way To The Grocery

Sometimes it’s a pleasure to walk instead of driving 🙂

My Walk in The Shire

Sing all ye joyful, now sing all together!
The wind’s in the tree-top, the wind’s in the heather;
The stars are in blossom, the moon is in flower,
And bright are the windows of night in her tower.Dance all ye joyful, now dance all together!
Soft is the grass, and let foot be like feather!
The river is silver, the shadows are fleeting;
Merry is May-time, and merry our meeting.Sigh no more pine, till the wind of the morn!
Fall Moon! Dark be the land!
Hush! Hush! Oak, ash and thorn!
Hushed by all water, till dawn is at hand!
All Ye Joyful by J. R. R. Tolkien

Launching The Sea Stallion from Glendalough 2017

I will never grow tired of the elegant lines, the beautiful colours, and the history behind Skuldelev 2 and The Sea Stallion from Glendalough.
This day was a bitterly cold day; April 8th 2017 when the crew launched the ship in Roskilde once again.
Spring has arrived despite the cold weather.

But If You So Much As Dare To Speak…

The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day.
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You’re one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
a cloud come over the sunlit arch,
And wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you’re two months back in the middle of March.
Robert Frost, Two Tramps in Mud Time, 1926

No need to take the jacket, I thought on the way out the door but did it anyway.
I had never managed without 🙂
