The West Coast

The Danish West coast nourishes me on every level. Although I live surrounded by the sea here on Aeroe, the West coast is something entirely different: The drama and scale, the power of nature and the crashing waves that pound the beach all year round, the colours of the sky, the sand, the windswept grasses, the deep mossy pine woods. I go here at least once a year, and if I don't, I feel a longing deep inside me. We usually go for a few days in August, but it is no less grand in October, you just need to add a few extra layers of clothing and wear a hat or scarf to shield your eyes from the sand in certain areas.

I know that if the universe allows me to live a long and healthy life, I will one day live there or buy a summer cottage there so I can go whenever I want.
