Alslev, Blåvandshuk - Denmark
It is time to rewind to April again. I have a few more photos to share from our trip to Denmark.
We returned to Billund Airport from Paris on a rainy evening. The wind was howling and reminded me of my childhood growing up on the Danish West-coast. One of my best friends, Søren, picked us up at the airport and we were about to spend three days with him and his wife, Mette, and their four wonderful daughters in Alslev near the North Sea. Søren and I go way back to grade school and even before that we knew each other. In our twenties we played together in a couple bands. Those were the days of "Willie and the Handjive" and "Oldies but Loonies". So we had lots of catching up to do.
The next morning was nice and sunny and with hardly any wind, which usually is unheard of in this part of the country. We drove out to Blåvandshuk which is located right on the coast and went straight for the lighthouse. The view was phenomenal on this clear day. We could see Esbjerg and a huge number of windmills in the distance. Denmark is well known for it's progress in alternative energy and this sight certainly proved the point.
Søren and Mette live in a gorgeous farm house so we spent much of our time relaxing, enjoying great meals, talking about our kids, old times, the future, music, politics, sports; you name it. I even ventured out on a short but much needed run. Thanks guys for an awesome time. It was so nice to spend time with you again. We will be back !!!
