NuukSå er jeg endelig tilbage på blogpinden. Foråret og sommeren har været hektiske for os, men med en dejlig og lang (internetfri) sommerferie, har jeg sparet godt op med blogemner. Årets sommerferie gik til Nuuk, hvor Magen, MM, LB og jeg besøgte min mor, der bor deroppe. Det var en skøn ferie, nærmest som at være i sommerhus, men bare med ultraflot udsigt over fjeldene og fjorden, hvor pukkelhvalerne boltrede sig. Vi så fine “haler” næsten hver dag, og to af dagene så vi en hval springe… helt fantastisk. Nedenfor følger en lille billedkavalkade af nogle af indtrykkene.

Finally, I’m back in the blog posting seat. This spring and summer has been very busy for us, but with a really wonderful and long (and almost internet free) summer vacation, I’ve got a couple of good blog posts in stash for the coming weeks. This year our summer vacation was spent in Nuuk, Greenland, where the Mate, MM, LB and I visited my mother, who lives there. It was an absolutely wonderful vacation, and almost like being in a luxury cabin with the extra advantage of being with family. The house has a great view of the mountains and the fjord, where the humpback whales flocked. We say tails almost every day, and two of the days we saw a whale breach… magnificent! A little selection of pictures below gives a feel of our vacation.

The colonial habour (Kolonihavnen) in the light after sunset (almost at midnigth)

The family has lunch on the top of Lille Malene (Little Malene), 432 m

I'll never get tired of watching the whales

mountain poppy

Gulls flying over the fjord - on one of our boat trips

Hjortetakken (Antler point) in the red light of 11.45 pm

Sermitsiaq waterfall

there were ravens everywhere - I think, it's a beautiful bird

The Circus Lake (circussøen) in glorious weather

Sometimes we spotted a adult and a calf swimming together

Jeg håber ikke, at der var alt for mange billeder, men det var svært at begrænse sig. Nu glæder jeg mig til at læse, hvad der sket i løbet af sommeren rundt i blogland.

I hope you aren’t overwhelmed by the picture spamming, but I had a hard time limiting myself. Now I’m looking forward to reading all the posts waiting for me in blogland.
