I think you are right, Polyesco.

And I too like to see M&F with children being allowed to be an ordinary family.

Billed Bladet this week naturally covers the vacation at Gråsten. I'll get back to that tomorrow.
There is also a large interview with the Regent Couple that is worth translating, more on that later as well.

However, there is not much concrete news in BB. Except Mary being quoted for saying: "Here are lots of opportunities for activities" when on the cycle to the nearby riding center.
And there are probably more opportunities even than at Fredensborg perhaps.
They can swim, in the swimming pool or at the sea.
They can go riding.
There are more quiet lanes, where they cycle.
They can pop across the border to Germany.
Go kayaking.
There are several family oriented amusement parks within an hour by car.
The park is large, so plenty of room for children (and dogs) to run around.
Gråsten Manor is large as well with lots of rooms and corridors to explore and hide.
There are interesting machines, like diggers daddy can impress the children with.
Frederik (and Hamish) can cycle into the baker in Gråsten town every morning - and afternoon - and evening - after fresh bread and pastry without causing a stir.

And on that note let us have a look at the all time holiday favorite: fresh bread and pastry.

In the morning the menfolks are obliged to pedal to the local bakers for "rundstykker" and "morgensnegle".
http://a.bimg.dk/node-images/19/2200...dstykker--.jpg
Cut in half and with a thick layer of real butter. http://www.fancybites.dk/wp-content/...-2076x1152.jpg
Still lukewarm from the oven.
Sometimes with cheese or jam. http://www.letlivet.nu/files/manager...g-rugbroed.jpg
You'd be surprised at how your otherwise very calorie-conscious wife can wolf down one bun after the other - as if she was pregnant!
Milk or juice is served alongside the buns.

Naturally no breakfast would be complete without morgensnegle = morning-snails, which is a pastry. There are countless variants.
http://www.bakkegaardensbageri.dk/Cu...1844/3_635.jpg
http://b.bimg.dk/node-images/792/7/2...-wienerbrd.jpg
http://levlykkeligt.dk/files/Snegle.jpg
Usually enjoyed with coffee. And because it's holiday you'll have two snails, right?
(One snail covers one seventh of a well build adult mans daily calorie intake).

After a wholesome lunch you begin to feel peckish in the mid afternoon, so you all stroll to the baker to have a freshly baked white bread, of which there are countless variants as well:
http://www.jannefischer.dk/wp-conten...-br%C3%B8d.jpg
http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-GVH4MtpjyN...kbr%C3%B8d.jpg
http://i.ytimg.com/vi/MwyMDlh6RE4/maxresdefault.jpg
Still warm from the oven naturally.
You use the rest of the butter from the morning, that almost melt on the bred. Cheese, jam, chocolate, Nutella means that, to your mild surprise, all the bread has vanish before you've finished your third cup of coffee.
It is summer after all, so you spoil yourself with something light, say a "flødeskumskage = whipped-cream-cake".
http://www.madenimitliv.dk/wp-conten...demedaljer.jpg
http://spisestuen.dk/wp-content/uplo...eskrans-29.jpg
Refreshing on a hot day - or otherwise...

After the dinner, you go for a stroll, and the womenfolks "persude" you to go to the baker one more time, while they go home and make some coffee.
What could be better for the evening coffee than a "kringle", right?
Again there are countless variants, easily one for each evening and the pastries in Southern Jutland in particular are very good indeed!
http://www.detsoteliv.no/sites/defau...?itok=_6_0ODES
https://klappeklappekage.files.wordp...8/kringel7.jpg
http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-2L4YWXPbFd.../doris+087.JPG
https://pantograph0.goldbely.com/upl...fe31406e84.jpg

And the next day, the whole thing starts again, unless of course someone comes visiting or there is something to celebrate. In which case Frederik will mount the iron horse again and embark on his journey to the baker after a layered cake. It is after all summer and there is no reason to make a song and dance act of the whole thing, right? So something simple will suffice. Perhaps with strawberries, that's refreshing.

As we all know, food eaten during a holiday doesn't fatten - until next week.

These pictures are making me want to go to the bakery, and I'm trying to behave, and avoid anything that remotely resembles desert, unless it's fresh fruit .

Thank you Muhler for the photos because they remind me of my long ago trips to France and more recent ones to visit my husband's family in Germany. His relatives spoiled us every day with the morning trek to the bakery.

The Google translate link does not work for me. Is she with Letizia and Felipe? Their names were mentioned in the article.

It says that King Felipe is already in Palma while Queen Letizia will arrive in the coming hours.

Thank you, Marika86. Looks like Mary is indulging in some retail therapy with a girlfriend while Frederik is away.

It's Birgitte Handwerk One of Mary's very closest friends, married with Jeppe Handwerk (probably Frederik's closest friend).

I wonder whether she will meet up privately with Felipe and Letizia.
It's nice seeing her enjoying her summer holiday and traveling. Do we know when she arrived and if the kids are with her?

Nice weekend trip for Mary. I wonder if they will stay a few days and have Frederik meet up with them or maybe it was a girl's only weekend trip

This is actually not possible since Frederik was (and still is, as I write this) in Malaysia from 30th July to 3rd August. And the Copa takes place from 1-8 August. But perhaps he will join Mary after tomorrow.

Judging from the heartwarm interaction we have seen between Mary and King Felipe not that long ago, perhaps Mary was invited down for the weekend. Now that she is a grass-widow. (*)

(*) Idiom. Grass widow/widower = When the husband or wife is away.

Lol. Felipe would be a grass widow too, I don't think Letizia has arrived yet.
Felipe I believe is Vincent ' s godparent
I think Mary went there with some of her danish friends. But hopefully there is a reunion of some kind, maybe Frederik can fly to Spain for a few days of sun after Malaysia
