Water and sand
– Just another response to Scott Thomas’ assignment.
This years summer vacation brought us to the northmost point of Denmark. Skagens gren.
To the north and west of this sand bank is Skagerrak, where the North Sea fills the gap between Denmark and Norway. To east and south is ‘Kattegat’ which connects to the Danish belts and then the Baltic sea.
The water here is never calm. The waves from the two sides meet and interfere. The day we were there it was relatively quiet, but there are strong currents and bathing is forbidden at all times.
When the small waves meet and interfereÂ they can rise to several times their original heigth. I could not make anyone go into the water to show you the size of the waves 🙂
The scenery – and just standing at the tip of Denmark – is a must for tourists. People walk from the parking place (20-30 min.) or they take the ‘Sandworm’,a heavy duty wagon pulled by a tractor. The last 100 m you’ll have to walk.
