Grundlovsdag

After taking care of essentials today, like grocery shopping and reconnoitering the area, we drove to the nearby town of Hundested where we discovered that all the shops were closed due to the fact that today, June 5, is Grundlovsdag, “Constitution Day.”

But at Hundested Havn – the harbor – people were out in droves, celebrating their National Day with family and friends.

We walked through town and around the harbor, resting to chat with these two guys. Woodn’t you?

Dale had read that the Sandskulptur Festival was taking place this month in Hundested Havn, so we looked for it and found it back by the fishing boats. The sand sculptures were amazing!

If I recall, there were 12 sculptures, created by artists from around the world. Rather than describe how these things are made, I’m just going to refer you to the website video which you can watch by clicking this link:
