Summer part 2, July

The weather in July can change from cold to warm as the wind blows, so to say. Because of the cold June, we didn´t expect much of a beach party in July, and was prepared for creative activities, as seen at the ipad / camera photo. As the day passed, the weather changed and suddenly the sun was shining and all kind of water equipment was taken to the beach. Nothing last for ever, nor does the good weather, but we were more than thankful for the warm days we got on our holiday in Jutland.

Spøttrup castle

Tracy, Reggie and every other princess or prince of mind around the blogsphere, let me and my handsome knight show you the medieval castle Spøttrup in Denmark.

Did you like it? To be honest, I didn´t mind to go back to reality, after a very interesting tour around the castle.  It is after all difficult if not impossible to feel how it must have been to live under such circumstances, without all the modern facilities we take for granted, heating for instance. Or a bathroom…medical care and what about blogging…no, all we can do is try to imagine, so that´s what we did.

The summer bouquet

Heather in a vase 2

Jutland has many areas with heather, one of them is the area that we use to go to for holiday. We use to take a small bouquet of heather with us back home and put it in an vase without water, to look at until we are going back next year for a new bouquet. I found a photo of a heat  in Jutland at Wikipedia.

Update:  Wikipedia link about the heat

Good morning

I woke up early. The sunrise made me go to the beach, trying to catch some of it with my camera.

Living close to the sea must be wonderful, every day a new combinations of cloudes, colors, wawes…We love returning to this place every summer.

“Can I borrow your camera for a moment” my son (17) asked some days ago….a little later he came back with the most amazing photos.
Next time it´s me asking “Would you like to borrow my camera?” I want to see more!

I love being close to the sea, (or inlet as this is) because of the constant changes in how everything looks, depending of how the the weather is. Every change has its own charm.

Sundown

My son took this photo yesterday, while I had conquered the internet modem.

Skive

 

 

I would like to show how interesting and decorative Skive have made the gutter/drain in the middle of the street.
