coast & castles with Lisbeth

day one in Denmark was a great day.
my old family friend Lisbeth picked us up and took us on a drive up north of Zealand. 
we drove up the coast past many gorgeous little coastal summer houses, past the castle where Hamlet was set in Helsingør and stopped for lunch (the most amazing fish i've ever had!) in a small beachside town called Hornbæk.

after lunch we checked out the Queen of Denmark's favourite castle in Fredensborg and then we headed to our main attraction of the day, a 16th century castle in Hillerød by the name of Fredriksborg. It was spectacular to say the least.

Following this we had danishes and fresh apples off the tree in Lisbeths' sweet little garden and a family dinner with everyone which was really really nice.

btw - there are SO many castles in Denmark, in the countryside, in neighbourhoods, in the city - everywhere!

a very handsome fellow
