Day 3 in Denmark found us just exploring some towns near our resort (Rageleje Klit). The resort is on the coast of northern Denmark and faces the Kattegat. It has a beautiful view, nice drives to surrounding towns, and only about 45 min to Copenhagen (by car).

We went to Helsinge to walk around the many shops, grocery shop, and enjoy the day. We went to Gilleleje that evening for dinner and to walk along the shore.

Eating dinner at Far til 4 (Father to 4)

There were plenty of jellyfish washed up on the shore.

With my sister and a beautiful sunset.

About the jellyfish: that night Lucas woke up and sounded like he was whimpering about something. I tried talking to him to find out what was wrong but he wouldn't say anything. Finally I said, "What is bothering you?" and he replied, "The train is bothering me!"

Train? There were definitely no trains around. He must've been dreaming/still sleeping.

I got him settled down, or so I thought, and a few minutes later he started doing that whimpering sound again. Not really crying with tears, but upset about something.

This time he managed to tell me, "I don't like the jellyfish! I don't want to see jellyfish!" I told him he didn't have to look at the jellyfish and to just go to sleep. I think the whole time he wasn't fully awake, he never had his eyes opened.

I put my hand on his chest to let him know I was there and he rolled over on his side. Then he lifted my hand off his chest and cried out, "Get the jellyfish off my shirt!"

The next morning I asked him if he remembered dreaming about jellyfish. He thought about it for a few minutes and then said he did. I asked him what he was dreaming about the jellyfish and he said "They were trying to come in the house and get on my clothes."

Poor kid ... those jellyfish on the shore must've given him some nightmare!

Aww. My kids go through phases of being afraid of things.

I'm loving these Denmark posts - my brother lives in Copenhagen so it's all somewhat familiar (particularly the expensive food!!) I've only visited him once, but hope to visit more. I think he's there long-term now...

The photo of you and and your sister and Lucas, sitting cross legged made me smile the way that you are all posed the same way,. I think the one of your sister and Kayla on the beach is a lovely photo, being together and "in the moment" and not aware of the camera.
