A Christmas Walk by the Sea

This is a magnificent beach in Sejerø Bugt in Kattegat. It’s called Gudmindrup. But don’t tell anyone. Keep it as a secret 🙂

The sea was our main entertainment. When company came, we set them before it on rugs, with thermoses and sandwiches and colored umbrellas, as if the water – blue, green, gray, navy or silver as it might be – were enough to watch. ~ Sylvia Plath

Where did Santa’s reindeer go?

The place was empty! Santa Claus was not in his office, and all the elves were gone.

At first I thought it was because the staff at the amusement park had cheated with the snow.

It takes a Santa to know ‘white’ from wrong!
The staff should know.


Then I discovered that Santa’s reindeer had run away –

… and Santa and his elves were out looking for Rudolph

On Christmas Day we went to the sea…

We could cover the windows with snow spray.
If we do that, we don’t have to look at the horrible weather.
We were seated at a wonderful Christmas table though the view towards the sea was blurred.
The rocky coastline faded away in a rough sea and heavy rain.
However, we quickly forgot the weather in the cheerful company with anecdotes, singing and delicious food.
On Christmas Day the weather was excellent, the rain had stopped 🙂

To our dear hosts:
May you live as long as you want,
And never want as long as you live.
