I see your pics. I don't know what to say. The photo is phantastic. I'm just impressed. I will keep an eye on your name and pics in the future, look at your pictures and feel the tiny hair in my neck slowly rise.

Thanks Jorgen! It's rare when someone takes a photo of me that actually turns out. I guess this one did.



Speaking of impressed, I was very impressed by your beautiful country. A long time ago I used to compete in women's single-handed Olympic sailboat racing. (Europa class) In 1990 (or 1991?) I spent some time at "Kalovig Baudelaug" in Studstrup north of Arhus. Do you know this area? It was the Europa Danish National Championships. There were hundreds of Danes, a few Chinese, and two Americans competing. The Danish people were wonderfully friendly and helpful.



Thank you again for your kind comments and please stay in touch.

Hi Carolyn.

Thank you for the nice words about Denmark. I know the place, a very beautiful spot of DK. Actually the eastcoast of Kaloe Vig is a peninsula called "Mols Bjerge" which meens "The Mountains of Mols". The highest peak is breathtaking 137 meters....one of the tallest in DK. Well actually just a hill formed during the last iceage. Come again sometime and visit the coastline, and watch the everlasting sunsets in the long light summernights.

Jørgen

PS....did you get any medals?

Wow, the Mountain of Mols... I didn't know that. Well, Denmark may not have many high mountains but what it lacks in mountains it makes up for in beautiful wildflowers. I remember the springtime hills being a brilliant sea of yellow. I hope to visit Denmark again someday.



No medals, unfortunately. It was a great opportunity to travel with the US Team and see the world but in the end, I don't think I have enough of the "competitive spirit."



Please take care,

Carolyn

...ice climbing pics.

It is interesting, I use to visit Arhus too, in 90's, we went windsurfing on the northwest coast, town of Nøre Vorepur, and I sailed in Europa class too in 80's, but just recreational..

I like Danemark a lot.

Happy Ice climb.

I like your kind words about DK. Thank you. Nørre Vorupør is a very windy place, isn't it? It must be. Welcome back again sometime.

Yes, it was very windy but beautiful.

BTW, we "climbed" highest point of Denmark, Himmelbjerget.

Very nice area.

Thanks.

Thank you Tomi! That's funny that you sailed the Europa as well. The rig has such a low aspect and the boats are so light that in a good breeze you get a great ride! I hope to return to Denmark again someday.



Please take care,



Carolyn
