When I learned that Vels in Denmark had hidden a cache for each of the top ten cachers, I knew I had to go find it, since I’d be staying so close in Northern Germany. Fortunately, my exchange sister, Gerlinde, has a penchant for adventure equivalent to mine, so off we went, following the maps in my iPhone, to find caches in the next country over.
It was the shortest day of the year, so the sun only got this high:
The first cache we found was at a rest stop, and it was a film can – but a really nice variation of the hide:
Gerlinde.fi signs the log book:
Here are Jakob and Tina Vels, the cache hiders of the one in my honor:
They forgot where they put it, as they’ve hidden over 60 in this park:
I’ll need to come back to find the rest – we only had time for four:
Statcache 33 Worldtop10 – 3 EMC of Northridge, CA
Statcache F – vores alle sammens godkender
Statcache 34 Worldtop10 – 4 DavidT21 & Fisherwoman
Statcache 35 Worldtop10 – 5 Ecorangers
OK, all you other Top Ten cachers… get yourselves to DK and find your caches!
After that, we went with them to a large sculpture garden with the art of Rudolph Tegner (1873-1950). I thought his work showed more realism than would be expected, considering his influences, but we only saw the outdoor part.
More on the artist:
and a link to the museum, which is out in a rural part of northern Denmark.
The weather was brisk and windy, but the views were marvelous and sweeping, so the experience was exhilarating.
Our trek to the next country over took us along the northern coast of Denmark.
The Baltic Sea is really foamy:
I’ve googled “what is sea foam?” and it would seem to be a mysterious substance. Anyone know about it?
We drove by Hamlet’s castle! Is something rotten in Denmark? Ah… so many quotes, so little blog space….
Next week – our third country in one day: Sweden!
