We had a free day today since the Cup No 1 is over. We spent the day going to Skagen, the northernmost town in Denmark. Once there we took a bus and a tractor-pulled "sand snake" to take us to the sand spit at the very tip (Grenen).
At that spot, the Baltic Sea and North Sea meet in a chaotic mess of currents. It's also a narrow passage between Denmark, Norway, and Sweden which makes it a strategic point for controlling shipping lanes. (Think U-Boats and Russian subs). Today it was merely a beautiful and relatively calm beach day free of any geopolitical drama.
After about an hour and a half on the beach, we returned to Skagen and wandered around the pedestrian shopping zone. The town is noted for its artists but sadly we didn't see any today. After a welcome spaghetti and pizza dinner, we returned to Frederikshavn by train for our last night in Denmark. Tomorrow morning we take the 3 hr ferry ride to Sweden!
Teeka has some more pictures to post later.
