Lemvig Skate ParkJuly 13, 2018 in Denmark ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C
We are parked side on to the small skate and play park in the town of Lemvig. The car park isn't an official stellplätz but since we pulled up here, 3 other vans have joined us.
Driving off the sand bar we travelled through some beautiful scenery. The dune to our left had been reinforced with old christmas trees, stuck into the sand to catch any wind blown grains and build up a solid wall to act as a dyke, protecting the narrow strip of low lying land we were on, from flooding when tides were particularly high. The land to the right of the straight flat road was mostly cattle fields with the occasional cottage. The blue waters of Nissum Fjord acted as a constant backdrop with distant wind turbines whirring round on the mainland.
Exiting the bar, it wasn't long before we arrived in Lemvig town. We had programmed in the official stellplätz but thanks to a comment on park4night we were aware that it may be closed due to building works. Upon seeing the area was fenced off we continued through the streets until we came to the skate park. There was building work going on here too but the car park was open and Poppy could use the edge of the grass when she needed the toilet. Will walked to Aldi and checked out the official stellplätz on his way. It was open but there was no grass for Poppy so we were glad to have found our spot.
It was Friday night and a few youths had gathered in the park. A young child played in the sandpit while their mother made a video call. A primary school kid rode his stunt bike around the sculpted concrete track, while a couple of twenty somethings pulled tricks on their scooters. Four teenagers hung out but despite being able to legally buy alcohol at 16 in Denmark, the extent of their hijinks was moving the wooden picnic tables so they were more sheltered from the wind!Read more
