Hejlsminde, DenmarkSeptember 17, 2017 in Denmark
Today we left the Danish island of Zealand via the Øresund toll bridge and drove over Funen island to the mainland. Our overnight spot was in a grassy car park at the end of a quiet road. There were a few pastel coloured holiday cottages on the approach but at the far end, where we parked, a track led down over a field to a thin strip of white sand that separated the land from the sea.
A wooden pontoon stretched out perpendicular to the beach and had a couple of ladders for people to access the water. Will had brought his swimming trunks but sensibly measured the water temperature before taking the plunge. At 14° it wasn't inviting enough and we opted intead for a stroll along the tree lined shore before sitting on a picnic bench while Will flew his kite.
