Slivsø free campground, JutlandSeptember 27 in Denmark
Today marks the end of 3 weeks island hopping in Denmark and the beginning of our journey to the Netherlands, where we plan to spend October. We've settled ourselves at the car park for Slivsø, a lake on the Danish mainland. There is a playing field behind us which is used by pensioners to play croquet and a free camp ground ahead of us. What looks like a Youth Club is making use of the area and the teenagers are putting on pre rehearsed dance routines for their friends, who reward them with polite rounds of applause. A fire is being stoked next to the wooden sleeping shelter, grey smoke billowing out to the leeward side.
This morning we left our beach side wild camp, the houses on our journey seeming even more beautiful in the sunshine, their colours complimented by the wildflower strips blooming at the edges of fields. We made use of Midelfart's LPG station, one of only 5 in the country. Will then trekked round 3 supermarkets in search of some Pedigree Senior food for Poppy as she was down to her last few scoops. Getting speciality foods such as this more difficult on the road.
It is at Midelfart where the Lillebæltsbro links Funen and Jutland so we soon drove over this bridge to the Danish mainland, where we would cross the border to Germany and 600km later enter the Netherlands.
Arriving at Slivsø, Will took his rods off to the water's edge and fished for a few hours while Vicky had a read in the van. We were a little sad to be on our way out of Denmark but it didn't stop us enjoying where we were at this moment.Read more
