Horsing Around on the Beach

Late this afternoon, around 6:00 p.m., we went to the beach at Liseleje to enjoy the fresh air and sun now that the rain has subsided. We like this beach; so far it’s been uncrowded and there’s that great ice cream shop around the corner with the licorice ice cream.

Anyway, as we were sitting there reading, we glanced up to see two girls riding horses on the sand in front of us, one of which looked like a Shetland Pony.

They literally rode off…

…into the sunset.

Sort of. The sun doesn’t set now until after 11:00 p.m., and it comes back up before 4:00 a.m. This coming Sunday is Midsummer’s Eve, the longest day of the year.

P.S. Tomorrow we’re taking an overnight ferry to Oslo, Norway, where we’ll have two days to see the city and surrounding area, then we’ll return to the port in Copenhagen on Friday morning. Should be interesting. Oslo is about 275 miles north of where we’re living in North Zeeland at latitude 60° North; the Arctic Circle is only another 450 miles north of that at latitude 66° 33′ 44″ North!
