This little boxed scene was brought back from Spain by the morganatic wife of Christian VII of Denmark. It puts the tat I bring back for The Weeping Cross to shame!
Lots of Danes have a summer house by the sea. Mogens (my Ma’s cousin Birgit’s, other half) has one in Ebeltoft on Jutland. This beautiful boat is the Fregatten Jylland – the longest wooden boat in the world.
Here is a close up of the figure head.
It’s still a great place to sail…
…and it’s a commercial harbour too.
We took the ferry
(with a cheery, lady captain) from Ebeltoft over to Zealand.
The warship in the bay was a reminder that the Baltic is still an important sea lane.
The ferry doesn’t half shift! I was amused that The Boy
and I both took this snap
independantly on different trips!
The spray cast little rainbows on the windows!
As some of you may know, I’ve been away in Denmark visiting family and friends. My Danish photos will be up soon, but I have to finish blogging my Istanbul ones first!
Thank you for all your comments.
