"Roadtrip" to Fyn

On Saturday, we had planned to go to Egeskov Slot.
Read or see more pictures here
However, when we arrived, we realized that we should have checked the hours first because the gates were locked... As I discovered later, they will not reopen until April so I suppose that this view of the castle will have to do for now.  Instead of seeing a castle, we spent the rest of the afternoon driving along narrow roads to Assens to have lunch.  We stopped along the way to look at a church...

Church in Brobyværk

As an American, I don't think I will ever tire of seeing buildings that were built in 1200AD
Crypt in bottom of church--another thing that is unseen in most of America (or all of America)

 ....visit a goose and a pony...

Ed crossed the street and they crossed the field and came right up to say Hi

Either the goose thought he was a pony, or the pony a goose--they were never more than a few feet apart

...and see some boats in the harbor at Assens, a town that used to be home to the ferry crossed between Fyn and Jutland before the bridges were built

  1. I like your title "Roadtrip to Fyn" it sounds like it should be a fairy tale, or a book title :)
