I don't know if I have told you about my little grandmother. She was born and raised in Denmark. She came with her family by boat when she was a teenager to America. They settled in Ephraim Utah. She later married George Allred. Together they had my mother. I don't know if she ever returned to her native land. I have had a strong desire to go for her. To see where she was born and raised, to feel her life. Well, I know I can't go back that far as to really feel it, but I can get close.
I have a young friend whose boyfriend is from Denmark. He works for the Airport and he can get deals to Denmark. His family has a home on the island of Fano in the South of Denmark. These pictures just came back with Jen and Andraus from their visit to Denmark. 1. A rainy day, Jen is wearing her white coat with a shawl that I brought her from Ecuador where all my precious babies are. 2. Jen is coming down a hill of white sand. She said there were hills and hills of the softest and whitest sand. 3. Jen is inside the queens summer castle, with it's white walls, where King Christian of Denmark was held captive for around 18 years. 4. This is the Queen's white summer home. The movie "The King and I" was filmed behind this home. 5. An old white windmill that was used for processing wheat in Southern Fano. AND 6. Remember the "Ugly Duckling storey written by Hans Christian Anderson (A Danish fairy tale)? These are some Ugly ducklings following their beautiful Mother. They can only hope that they grow into such beauty. They are in the mote outside the castle.
Don't ya think I have a great Chance of going myself one day?
Thanks for stopping, please let me know you did. Happy White Wednesday.
