Rømø to coastal Germany

After Middelfart we drove over the old rail bridge on to Jutland in very mixed weather and headed for the west coast ending up on Rømø, an island off the coast connected by the longest causeway I've ever driven
Having stayed the night courtesy of a very deserted and bleak golf club car park at Havneby we were chuffed to wake to glorious sunshine...great
A drive back up the coast and its off with the bikes and attempt to ride in to the howling wind...
Sunshine turned to a thunderous downpours and yes we got soaked….again

Wow..modern seaside architecture
Bleak or what?

Down by the harbour in Havneby in torrential rain, us cowering behind a dockside building wall and this guy just going about his business

We decide to drift back down to the German border and promise ourselves to return to Denmark in future years combining it with a full Scandinavian tour

Beers and huge pizzas in Brunsbuttel followed by another quaint harbour here at Glückstadt

We had company next door overnight which was kind of strange as we seem to be on our own now most nights and have got quite used to it again

Tonning was a nice place with a return to German Dunkel beer in the local hostelry which picked us up

Surely the biggest advent calendar we've seen. This is the venue for a large Xmas market at the end of november

Determined not to be outdone by the poor weather we risk it again on the bikes, this time at Krummendeich on the coast. Several nights of quality peaceful wild camping at spots along the huge Dykes here puts us in a calm mood ready for when we got very lost and return to the van in the dark
