Drove along the coast to Lemvig, before heading North-East to Aalborg.

Men at sea

Men at Sea or Man meets the sea is a 9-metre (30 feet) tall white monument of four seated males, located west of Esbjerg next to Sædding Beach on the southwest coast of Denmark. Located opposite the Fisheries and Maritime Museum, it is one of the area’s major tourist attractions, and is a landmark of Esbjerg.[1]

The sculpture was designed by Svend Wiig Hansen and installed on 28 October 1995. It was funded by the Municipality of EsbjergStatens Kunstfond (an art fund), and multiple private sponsors, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the municipality in 1994.

The artist’s original idea for the location of the sculpture was Grenen, north of Skagen.

The monument can be seen from ships leaving or entering Esbjerg harbour.


Some images along the way


Had lunch at Café Larsen along the beach. Walked around in Lemvig to get some exercise.


Drove to a hotel I have used on previous occasions in Aalborg, and got a room there. Relaxing a bit before going downtown for dinner. There were a lot of people out, so we walked a bit before finding a restaurant we liked. Eventually found Søgaards Bryghus, where I’ve been before. Tried sitting outside, but it was too chilly.
