Yesterday our little family visited the chalk cliffs of Møns Klint on the distant island of Møns.
Visiting this island which is 2 hours south of Copenhagen, is like stepping into a storybook filled with charming old towns, pastures filled with sheep, and houses with thatched roofs. I highly recommend making the trip if you find yourself in Denmark.
We stumbled upon this pretty church on the way to the cliffs.
When we reached Møns Klint, not a soul was in sight. We discovered that the on-site museum was closed for the season and our car was the only one in the parking lot. We truly had the place to ourselves.
These stairs were tricky to get down with an excited dog who had been in the car for hours.
The stairs just kept going...
and then we saw this gorgeous water, turquoise from all of the minerals.
The cliffs were beautiful. Apparently the chalky soil gives nutrients to a variety of orchids in the early summer. I definitely want to go back to see that!
The erosion makes it dangerous to walk off the path and under the cliffs.
We stopped a few times on the way back up and Aaron noticed that there were no animals, no birds, and no noise except the rustling of bare branches. Creepy!
Today I've been having one of **those** days. You know the ones when your dog has to have a potentially cancerous mole removed and the vet charges you 4x the quote he gave you the week before (in one of the most expensive cities in the world)? And then you get a huge parking ticket while you are at the bank in order to over pay the vet? Yeah, I had **that** day. The hiccups in life sure feel like speed bumps when you are going through them. Must keep calm and carry on.
