Have to say the bed in the Landy is way more comfortable than the hotel’s, we stayed in. However, we really enjoyed our stay in Aalborg. What a lovely city. So relaxed and the shops are beautifully presented. It took us half an hour to find a shop with postcards. They are so not into tourists, which was rather refreshing.Huh! Jen just tells me Aalborg has the second highest income from tourism in Denmark. It’s also the worlds largest supplier of white cement. Thank you Wikipedia..:)
A significant city. pop approx 200,000 with it’s twin city across the other side of the fjord, connected by bridge. It’s a university city with some lovely historic but also contemporary architecture, that blends well.
Picked the Landy up at around 3pm with huge expectation, alas, we still have the problem. It didn’t show it’self till we got to the port of Hirtshals and stopped for some provisions. Oh dear! Where to now? On the bright side, we have a new pump and that’s been eliminated and we still have propulsion. We will call to a dealer in Trondheim and see what they can find. May have to auction Jen to keep going..:).
So right now we are at a camp site overlooking the Kattaget where it meets the Skagerak. That evokes memories of a 50’s song. It’s a beautiful evening and the sea is like glass. I recall being in this same campsite 50 years ago with Kate and Deirdre when we were touring around Europe in our first LandRover, a 1959 SWB Series 2. All night long the herring boats were leaving port with the sound of their single cylinder diesels putt-putting into the distance. No sign of any this evening. Maybe the Herring industry has been marginalised and larger trawlers are operating in deeper water?
The camp is nicely kept and there are dozens of camper vans here for the night, no doubt like us, awaiting the mornings ferries. We were going to sail to Kristiansand but have a cheaper fare to Langesund which is further north. We are now looking at economising..:)
9.45pm and the sun still has 15min till it dips below the sea line.
Tell you what, we have no idea what countries Donald Trump is planning on destroying or marginalising and it’s refreshing.
