Northern Jutland



Taking up a friend's offer to borrow a car for a couple days, Joanna and I got around the north of Jutland. We stopped off at a medieval fort, a Viking cemetery, a sand-buried church, a Renaissance manor house and a handful of German bunkers, half-buried along the sand-swept beaches of Denmark's North Sea coast.
