Dragør is little fishing town 40 minutes South of Copenhagen. With colorful yellow buildings and many orange tile roofs- this village could be mistaken for a charming town on Bornholm if it were not for the fact that Dragør is built on flat land- and as I remember it- Bornholm was quite hilly. Still- Dragør is very peaceful- with cobbled side streets and a view of the sea- and I would be delighted to return there soon.
My family and I wound our way to the beach- with is patchy grass in grey-tan sand and a dome of cloud resting above- promising rain. You can see the bridge which connects Sweden and Denmark stretching into the mist on the edge of the horizon like some monstrous roller-coaster which rides above the Baltic Sea.
A dock stood wearily in the grey- and I walked upon it- I cannot recall if it squealed with tired frustration of my presence- or simply stood in silence quietly considering the windy waves which rocked against it’s withered legs.
A post stuck out from the sea- stubborn and strong- where birds rest and watch as the days go by. Such a bird I scared when walking with my camera towards it- and although that sea bird escaped the impenetrable eternity of being caught on camera I was able to capture the post it stood on- lonesome and greyed with the great weight of the ineffable whispers the breeze brings across the sea.
Once we had finished wondering the beach we worked our way back to the village- where we walked through the cobblestone side streets that twist and turn through Dragør.
We found cat in the winding alleys- who removed itself from our presence rather quickly once I began petting it. I haven’t seen my own cats in months- and I truly wish I could see them both.
After our experience with the cat I noticed a courtyard with a well pump- it was intriguing enough that I wanted to take a picture of it.
We walked through some shops and got lunch at a restaurant- after-which we purchased some caramels and mead among other things- and went to the bus-stop so we could traverse our way home.
Dragør is a fascinating place- and I know that I most certainly would like to explore it more in future!
