Greetings from Grenen, the northern-most point in Denmark, north of the town of Skagen. The photo is of Henrik and me. What you see behind is is the meeting of the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. The photo is from a trip we recently took to Northern Jutland. This is just one of the many beautiful places in Denmark. Note: I wore my bathing suit and went swimming in the cold waters, but Henrik did not; you would think I was the hearty Dane!!!
Where we are standing you can have one foot in the Skagerrak, a part of the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean, and on in the Kattegat, a part of the Baltic Sea. We got there by Sandormen ("The Sand Worm"), a tractor pulled bus going from the parking lot just south of Grenen.
Welcome!!! to all Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, and Icelandic heritage (including those fearsome Vikings!)and all those interested in the history, genealogy, languages and cultures of these Scandinavian and Nordic cultures. We are the most active group on Yahoogroups discussing Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Finland!
There are various Scandinavian American events listed from around the USA - and many Norwegians, Danes, Swedes, Finns and Icelanders on the list who are full of information about their countries.
Be sure to look through and contribute to our Links section, which contains many interesting websites. We have LOTS of photos! Our Files section has some delicious Scandinavian recipes. Enjoy the group!
