A quiet evening on the foredeck

Oceans of Hope – how high the sky is today!

 

A tiny dinghy just south of Kronborg, fishing rods blinking; the daily bread. 

 

A yacht circumnavigating the world flies by with full sails on the boat and full sails on the dreams. It will be a year and a half before we pass by here again, southbound. We are going out to conquer our worlds first.

 

Wind in the face, the fading sun, and a glimpse of friends and family, who dedicated, touched, and excited had gathered to send us off with style and a heart-warming farewell.

 

Kronborg is getting bigger; it will soon be on our portside in the evening sun. A tanker approaches and heads south with a different load. I’m heading to the cockpit to enjoy Kronborg with the others now.

 

 

STILLE AFTENSTUND PÅ FORDÆKKET

 

Oceans of Hope – himlen er så høj i dag!

En lille jolle lidt syd for Kronborg, fiskestænger blinker; det daglige brød. En jordomsejling kommer forbi for fulde sejl og ligeså fuld af drømme. Der går 1 ½ år før vi sejler her igen, sydgående. Vi skal ud og erobre vores verdener først. Vinden i ansigtet, den dalende sol og glimt af familie og kære venner, der engagerede, bevægede, begejstrede var mødt op for at sende os af sted med hjertevarme og manér.

Kronborg bliver større og større; om lidt om bagbord i aftensolen. En tanker kommer udefra, og går mod syd. Dens last er en anden. Går ned til de andre i cockpittet for at være sammen om Kronborg.
