Summer Holiday 2019

Summer holiday to Denmark and Netherlands, followed by a road trip back home.

Image: Driving south to Bergen, the grid company was installing new power lines. Image: We've arrived in the queue for the ferry to Denmark, just one car between us and mum. Image: Mom secured us a table in the forward lounge while we put the luggage in the cabin. Image: Helen, ready for the voyage. Image: Mango daiquiri for me and mum and strawberry for Helen. Image: View from the lounge towards Fløyen. Image: Some curious building at the quay. Image: We're on our way. Another mango daiquiri for mum, a Kronenberg for me and some fruity drink for Helen. Image: On deck enjoying the view as we're approaching Haugesund. Image: Sørhaugøy fyr lighthouse at the outskirts of Haugesund. Image: Helen managed to catch a sharp picture of a great black-backed gull in flight. Image: Horses browsing on Karmøy, just north of Karmsund Bridge. Image: Nice house by the bridge. Image: The Viking Village on Bukkøy. Image: Once in Denmark, we decided to kill some time by making a visit to Grenen at Skagen, the northernmost point of Denmark, where the seas Skagerrak and Kattegat meet. A busy area for shipping. Image: Lots of cargo vessels waiting for authorization to proceed into Danish waters. Image: View towards the tip of the land. Nazi Germany fortified this area heavily during their occupation. Image: Me and mum strolling towards the tip. Image: Mum and Helen, coming along. Image: View of Skagerrak, to the north of Grenen. Image: And Kattegat, to the east of Grenen. Image: Me, wading into the sea just where Skagerrak and Kattegat meet.
