To the mountains!

Hubby starts a new job next Monday, so we decided we needed a trip, just the two of us. The kids are back at school, after all. and they’re old enough to take care of themselves. So, what should we do? Mini cruise to Copenhagen? Yes, grand idea. Only, they only had the worst cabins left. With bunk beds. So we looked in the other direction and booked two nights at a mountain resort. And we’re so happy we did. The drive up was amazing. The food here is nice. Nothing to rave about, but not bad. Wholesome and tasty. But the views! Ah, this is balsam for the soul. My heart’s been making leaps of joy at the sheer beauty. At one point I felt like I was about to burst from joy, but I burst into tears I stead. No idea where that came from, but I do know that this kind of nature speaks to my soul. What a blessing the good cabins were sold out on the ferry to Copenhagen. This is a gazillion times better. 

Some photos from our trip today:

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Looks much like the Pacific Northwest with the lush meadows, evergreen forests, rivers, lakes and mountains. I see why it moves you.

    What a beautiful place! Every picture takes me away from my urban apartment … you were really lucky to not get cabin at Copenhagen

    • Thank you. Yes, we were, weren’t we? I’d almost forgotten how achingly beautiful it is up in the mountains. Very happy to have been reminded.
