Sidste uge -- Last Week

     Sidste uges "Vejen hjem" var snyd. Uglemor var slet ikke på vej hjem, og Ugleungerne var ikke i skole. Alle Ugleboets indbyggere var i sommerhus, hvor vi havde travlt med at nyde sommeren der endelig dukkede op!

Last week's On my Way Home was cheating. MotherOwl was not on her way home, the Owlets were not of to school. We were all in a summer house having fun and enjoying the summer that finally showed up!


Sidste års sandskred på grund af stormvejrets rasen var smukt bevokset med valmuer. Piraten demonstrerede at han var Minimax' bror og kravlede på hegnet.

The cliffs damaged by the storms last year were overgrown with wild poppies. Pirate demonstrated he is the brother of Minimax by climbing the big bulwark.

     Uglemor fandt ikke så meget drivglas i år. Der er ved at blive mindre af det, folk smider ikke længere flasker i havet, og vind og vejr nedbryder de stykker der stadig ligger der. Men alligevel fandt Uglemor nogle søde stumper. Også et par blå.

Sea glass is getting scarce. People do not throw their bottles overboard any longer, and wind, sand, and water is slowly breaking down the existing pieces. But nonetheless MotherOwl found some pretty pieces, including some blue ones. 


     Tirsdag blev det vejr til at lege på stranden. Ugleungerne elsker at grave store huller. 
- o O o -
Tuesday the summer came, and we played on the beach. The Owlets love digging big holes!


     Når vejret var køligt, kunne man altid male stenmalerier. Det er en sommerhusspecialitet og -tradition.

When the weather was cool, it was time for stone paintings. It is a thing we always do in the summerhouse. 


     En anden tradition er et besøg hos sandskulpturene i Hundested. Her er det "The Dragon & the George"

Another tradition is a visit to the sand sculptures in Hundested. This one we named The Dragon and the George


Her har vi så Uglemor. Vandet var koldt! men det var dejligt lunt i solen.

Here's MotherOwl trying to persuade herself to go for a swim. The water was cold! but the sun was hot. 


Sommerhusskydeøvelser.

Shooting practise - the summerhouse way. 



En vidunderlig valmue fra vores aftenture. Den sidste dag snuppede Uglemor en frøkapsel fra den.

A poppy from our evening walks. MotherOwl just had to pick a seed pod, let's hope it'll mature. 


Uglemor fik oven i købet lavet sommerhussæbe. 
- o O o -
MotherOwl even took time for some summerhouse soaping. 


Mere drivglas - og et lille stykke rav. Årets eneste.
- o O o -
More sea glass and a little piece of amber. The only one this year. 


Det er sjovt at blive begravet i sand, men den efterfølgende sand over det hele-følelse er ikke rar.
- o O o -
Being buried in sand is fun, getting the sand off not so much.


Spiril er vores vandhund, han var i vandet mindst en gang om dagen.

Marsupilami loves water. He went for a swim every day. Sometimes twice. 


Vi spiste også is, legede med krabber, så fjernsyn - en luksus vi ikke har derhjemme -  spiste fisk og nye kartofler, fangede brandmænd, så en mår på svømmetur, svaler, blå sommerfugle og meget mere.

We had lots of ice cream, fresh potatoes and fish, we caught Lion's mane jellyfish, saw a beech marten swimming, blue butterflies, schools of small fish, swallows living in holes and much much more.

  1. Uglemor,

    I enjoyed sharing your holiday! We haven't been to the beach so far this year and it was lovely to look at your photos of the sea and sand. Your holiday reminded me of one of my Angels stories. They didn't collect sea glass though while they were at the beach. I've never seen sea glass on our beaches. The sea has to be VERY warm before I'll go for a swim. Usually, I just wade along the shoreline and watch my more adventurous children!

    1. Well I suppose you can still make it to the beach later this year. I want my water warm as well. I did not get into the water more than knee deep that day, but my children are more adventurous as well - well most of them.I suppose beaching will come later when happy busyness is over and the water is warmer again.
