Camping in The Forest

I had a lovely walk in the forest some days ago.
After a short walk I met William. He was wearing a big rucksack. His plan was to camp along the lake, Esrum Sø.
The opportunities for camping are possible if you want to sleep out on your way through the big forest, Gribskov.
As we walked I told him of a place near a forester’s house, Graverhus, where he could pick up water.
I don’t exaggerate, I was today’s hero 🙂

Enjoy nature and leave only your footprints behind you ❤

Buttercups and Fairy Miners

Everything is lush and green as far as the eye can see, but after a while there is something that interferes with the green.
Golden glimpse between tall pines. Buttercups. Billions of buttercups.
As if that weren’t enough, the beautiful Icelandic horses adorn the meadow and immortalise this vibrant summer day
That’s what walking is all about:
Beautiful discoveries ❤

There must be fairy miners
Just underneath the mould,
Such wondrous quaint designers
Who live in caves of gold.

They take the shining metals,
And beat them into shreds,
And mould them into petals
To make the flowers’ heads.

Sometimes they melt the flowers
To tiny seeds like pearls,
And store them up in bowers
For little boys and girls.

And still a tiny fan turns
Above a forge of gold,
To keep, with fairy lanterns,
The world from growing old.
