Panoramic view from the [brief] Civil War memorial stone.

Hagenskov Gård is an impressive house which has an enclosed yard surrounded in historical agricultural buildings and homes for the former staff on a truly grand scale.
Slot's Allé is the first turning on the left after leaving the house and walled garden behind. It is a narrow, winding lane descending between ancient trees and past beautiful old, half-timbered estate houses and a water mill. I have shared images of these previously. Though probably not named them as such. Sadly quite a number of drivers use this romantic lane as a rat run. Though heaven knows why. A simple understanding of geometry would show that any two sides of the same rectangle save not a single yard nor meter over the other two sides.
The whole area absolutely reeks of nostalgia for golden times past. Only a walk or cycle ride does the Allé real justice. There is nowhere to stop in a car and passing opposing vehicles is largely a matter of luck and taking to the grass verges.
I had better give you a view of the sea just to prove I actually saw it. [Several bits of it, in fact!] This is the view looking down the hill on Nymarksvej. [New field way.]
A small estate of summer houses nestles down by the sea beyond the woods. There are quite a number of similarly steep hills in this area. I shot down one hill in the forlorn hope of making it at least partially up the opposite side of the switchback. Only to have a horse transporter come over the top of the next hill blocking my safe passage. There ensued a long and breathless grind up the steep climb.
Somehow I even managed to capture the steepness of the hill as it falls straight towards the sea in a series of undulating steps.
It was a gorgeous day of warm sunshine and the cool winds were light enough not to become a nuisance. Like the idiot I am, I put off eating my packed lunch until I returned home. Somehow I could not quite find the right place to stop and eat. I was gone for nearly four hours but still only managed 30 miles with several shopping stops and lots of photographic pauses.
