The light rain had developed into quite the downpour during the night, with some stormy winds that sent the leaves flying and the fir cones tumbling down on the roof of the little wooden summer cottage. But the next morning, we were greeted by the most beautiful, sunny fall day.

The fire had gone out, but luckily it wasn’t too cold, and we quickly got another one started to warm us up as we prepared for breakfast.

Which, since it was Sunday, obviously had to consist of pancakes.

Drizzled, no, drowned, in obscene amounts of maple syrup.

That’s what I’m talking about!

After this luscious breakfast, we decided to make use of the beautiful weather outside and head for the beach to take a nice, long walk. I love Rørvig Strand, it’s great in the summer for tanning and the occasional swim, and it has amazing sunsets. But it’s also great in the fall!

We caught a windy day, and the waves were higher than I’ve ever seen them before. Their rushing, together with the shrieking of the seagulls and the wind in the marram grass made for quite the soundscape!

We walked along the beach and simply enjoyed our surroundings – the cold, fresh wind, the scent of salt and sand and fish. Tightly wrapped, with thick scarves and hats and my trusty Wellies, we were well equipped to brave the elements.

After a while, we decided to leave the beach and walk back through the little forest right behind it, so we found a little pathway through the dunes.

I love the fact that there’s a little wood so close to the beach. Sure, you won’t have a great variety of trees so close to the sea and on the sandy ground. Forget your oaks, elms, or any broad-leaved trees in general – this little seaside forest area is made up pretty much exclusively of needle trees and birches. But there’s moss, and there are fir cones, even some small mushrooms. And there is the occasional, orange-leaved tree. So pretty!

Refreshed and slightly exhausted, we decided to head on home, where we had a quick lunch and resumed our non-activities of snuggling up on the couch, reading, and simply relaxing, before we packed up the car and headed home in time for Sunday’s NFL games.

How about you – have you spent a weekend away recently?
