Where I stayed
danhostel Frederikshavn, Denmark
We then checked into our Hostel with our 4 bunk beds, picnic table outside our door and community kitchen
After dinner we used free city bikes located at the hostel to ride back to the beach to explore it some more. Well, these bikes will never be stolen, they were the hardest bikes to pedal even in this fairly flat territory. Palm Beach had plenty of area to catch rays, sand volleyball courts, a marina filled with pleasure crafts, (Steve drooled over the sailing boats) and no surf on its’ shallow flats that we wading in. Rumor had it that at the end of the beach we could find the best ice cream around and lo and behold we did at a very popular seaside stand. Finally big scoops of ice cream!! We road back to the hostel and relaxed with a card game next to Inge and Jonna, who were from the part of Denmark that Hans Christian Andersen is from. They were up in northern Denmark to go to the beach for 5 days. They were enjoying a heated game of Yahtzee while we played cribbage. We knew we needed to get to bed early, because we needed to catch our boat fairly early the next morning, but with the sun setting(?) for only a few hours it was difficult to go to bed. We keep getting surprised by how late it is. Frederikshavn was a beautiful small town surprise.
