Denmark in Pictures

If you read yesterday's post, you know that I really did not document the past few weeks very well. Below are literally the only pictures I have from the experience but I thought them worth sharing nonetheless.

The weather was pretty much exclusively rainy during our stay in Denmark. Because we were mostly holed up inside in our pajamas the entire time, no one minded very much. Still, conditions for sightseeing would have been much better had the sun come out to play. 

A typical danish house. Doesn't it seem like the seven dwarves would be arriving home from the diamond mine any second now? 

These windmills dotted the Danish landscape as we drove. I'm sure there are far more in the Netherlands, but I was still impressed by the number of windmills we passed. 

Steven and I went with our family (the little ones included) to a cool park where all of the playground equipment was made solely from cut logs. It wouldn't pass a safety test in America by a long shot but the Danish kids don't seem to mind at all! There was also a giant sand hill with ropes you can use to climb it. It would be so fun to climb/sled down in the winter! We raced up the hill. I won. 

Steven and I also visited the town of Svendbourg on the southern tip of the island. It was adorable, with so many little cobblestoned alleyways lined with shops and cute restaurants. I would love to go back in the summer when we could wander the streets wearing fewer layers, enjoy dinner outside and watch the sun set at 11:30 PM (Scandinavia, I tell you!) 

This is how the majority of the week was spent. Feeling cozy in the little loft of the second floor of our vacation house, reading or working on Homework while enjoying the view of the North Sea. Perfection.

Sometimes it's best to leave the camera off for a weekend and just unplug... and it looks like you did that perfectly :) Such a cozy holiday!
