Visiting the Viking King
We had a slow morning until Helle wrote at 10 AM and asked if we wanted to do something fun with the dogs, when she finished work at 2 PM.
Yes we did, so I took the boys for a training session each and went shopping for a picnic tea and then it was time to leave for an afternoon in Land Of Legends*.
My picture is from the King's Hall. It is a reconstruction of a Viking King's house, which was found very close to where it has now been reconstructed.
It is an amazing building and it is hard to imagine how something that spectacular was built without machines and more advanced tools back in the period from 800 until 1050 AD.
You can read more about the King's Hall here.
When Land Of Legends closed, Helle and I found a nice spot in the shade and enjoyed a picnic dinner.
A fabulous day indeed. I have added a few more pictures in the extra.
See you tomorrow
