"Great Waves" of Skagen

Denmark's Northcape - " Kattegat meets Skagerrak " means Baltic sea meets North sea.

i posted about the sand dunes in Skagen before a few months ago, and i said i will post about the city, but let me share to you first the "Great Waves" of Skagen or Denmark ;)

have you ever been to a Northcape? i did! at the very high up in the North of Denmark at the very end of Skagen we went there to see this "Great Waves". I know it's not like the northernmost point of Europe, the North Cape 71° 10' 21'' N, our friends from Köln with his 13 year old daughter and his wife from Sweden went there and some friends, they just sent us a post card from there, they made it. That would be easy for us to go there because Sweden is not so far from Norway ;)

ok back to Skagen, it was so cold that day, windy but we are lucky the sun shines and the sky is clear, the water is so cold with the temperature of 10°C and not good for swimming of course, and it's also not good for swimmers because of the dangerous current of the waves, on our way back to the parking lot we saw this cute little yellow bird ;)

maybe someday... i will see the North Cape... someday... ;)
*the photo of me with the church is also part of our trip there, they call it "tilsandede kirke" or church buried in the sand thousands of years ago, it reminds me of the church tower in Bicol, Philippines.


  1. The photos are great, and you did dip your feet in the water. Was it cold enough? The little yellow bird is a joy to see.

  2. The water appears to be so nice, who knows it is only 10°C.

  3. Icy BC > thank you Icy :) yes it's cold Icy cold enough, we saw the bird near the parking lot and amazing it didn't flew away Icy ;) i thought birds are hard to get in the camera ;)

    rainfield > thank you rain :) you are right maybe it's even colder

  4. With those lovely looks so warm but looking at you and the other visitors ( madaya ako, ini-enlarge ko hehehe) it must be cold. Lamigin pa naman ako sissy. Malamig na sa akin yang 10 degree celsius.
