According to the cover on Her & Nu, which Polyesco posted, M&F are not in Skagen, the northernmost tip of Jutland.

They have been there before and several of their friends own cottages in the area. Not to mention that the Skeel family, where M&F have stayed often, have their estate less than an hours drive away.

Strictly speaking the photo on the cover is illegal, according to the Danish legislation on privacy, unless M&F have given their express permission.

That is some big beach, and it doesn’t look too warm

It looks like the CP family are having a very relaxing holiday, and it's nice to see that they can go virtually undisturbed and when there are photos, there are only a couple.
I don't recognise the Jack Russell looking dog in the photo of all of them at the beach, perhaps he or she is a family friend or relative's dog? AFAIK Mary and Frederik only have Grace.

Looks windy enough to calculate wind chill. Brrrr?

Try having one for six weeks! Today is the first we’ve seen more than an hours rain since May!

We've hardly had rain either since May.
3 mm in July, the average is 60!
Hot though, but at least the temperature stayed below 30 C, but not these past few days.
So we are very pleased with the leftovers of rain coming over from you. Have you got some more for us, please?

With the icebergs melting in Greenland- would the ocean/surf be too cold for a swim? Or is it too far away to affect the Danish coastline.?
From a no clue poster.

That lack of rain sounds serious. The water looks way too rough to swim in. Is that typical?

In the long run, yes.
The climate is getting hotter, there is no denying that. We can discuss the reasons for that. Climate fluctuations is nothing new.
When the ice melts in Greenland, mainly west Greenland and Canada. The icebergs float south and if they survive long enough they eventually float into the Gulf Stream, going from the Caribbean Sea, across the Atlantic to western Europe, ensuring a mild climate here.
It was BTW such a rogue iceberg that got Titanic back in 1912.

But if there are many icebergs and they are big, they won't melt right away and go deeper into the Golf Stream. It's basically like pouring a little cold water into hot water. - It chills.
That means the water reaching Europe will be colder, cooling down the climate.
So while the globe is getting warmer, the north will get colder. Leading to more icebergs - floating south...
And if it happens over a certain time period the result is a new ice age. (*)
That affects the global air-currents as well. The warm currents will be pushed south, cooling off the climate even more.
So instead of a mild climate, with the odd ice-winter. Ice-winters will be the norm, fueled by an icy wind coming from the Arctic and Siberia.
During the last genuine ice-age 12.000 years ago, glaciers covered most of Denmark, the north coasts of Germany and Poland as well.
On the plus side there will be more land, and after some time we will be able to walk over to Britain and a while longer travel along the ice-rim to North America, just like our ancestors did.

Ironically, the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea will empty, as the global water level drops and in a surprisingly short time they will be reduced to parched salt-deserts.
Sahara on the other hand will eventually become green and fertile again.
In North America the Badlands will be remolded over and over and over again whenever the ice-dams holding back a huge inland sea breaks down and gigantic floods break through.
I have no idea what will happen to you down south, but at least you can walk to Thailand and Bali for your vacations there.

So to answer your question: Yes, after a some time, perhaps a generation, perhaps even less, the sea around DK will be too cold for recreational swimming except during the warmest summers.

(*) Strictly speaking we are living in an ice age right now, we've just had a long summer, so far lasting some 12.000 years.
The current ice age has been going on for millions of years and will continue for some millions of years more.

It is. The grain harvest is bad this year. Almost halved.
At present DK produce grain enough to feed our own population and to feed all living in New York city. If that is halved the prices on ecological bread will go up.
But there are huge stocks of grain, so it won't affect the general bread prices that much. Unless we get a couple of more summers like this.
However, ecological farm products will become more expensive this winter. Many ecological farmers have had to reduce their stock because there will not be fodder enough.
The prices for central heating will also go up, as shells from grain is among the things used as fuel at the heating plants. Less grain = less shells = less fuel = higher prices. - So let's hope we have a mild winter.
But at least the grapes are doing wine. This will be one of best years yet for wine-producers here in DK.
- All that is a general problem all over large parts of the northern hemisphere.

As for the surf. It's not that bad for the west coast. It's usually windy with a high surf, which is why so many love to go there at all times of year. Especially Germans and Norwegians!
And of course the sea still claim a few tourists a year. In my childhood it happened several times a week during the summer, (mainly Germans) with an upsurge after the fall of the Wall in 1989. Now they have learned to read the sea too and there are lifeguards at most beaches now.

Thank You Polyesco & Eya.

Se & Hør also writes that Isabella went to Broholm Manor, to watch the Danish championships in riding. I don't know what the correct term is in English. It's about controlling the horse and make it move to various commands. Dressage?
Isabella wasn't alone though. Benedikte and Nathalie. Nathalie is the trainer for the Danish national team. And Benedikte is patron.

Here is Broholm Manor.

The place is from before 1326. It is today owned by the Sehested family, several Sehesteds have played a prominent role in Danish history.

That was about 2 months ago, mid-June. Isabella was with a friend and the friends family. Don't know who.

Thank you for the detailed explanation Muhler. I saw a documentary about 20 yrs ago on the next ice age exactly as you described it. It was very interesting which is why I remembered it.
Do I detect a note of jealousy if we Aussies can walk to Bali from here. (Ha ha.)
I tell you what. It only costs about $160, or £80 to fly to Bali from Darwin our Northern capital.

Darwin, perhaps destined to being a future skiing resort for Indonesians on holiday?
Okay, perhaps not Darwin, but Melbourne?

BB has written a little about the whereabouts of M&F for the past couple of weeks, but it is obviously not the policy of BB to show photos of the DRF enjoying a private holiday, even if that is in a public place. So they only show the photos submitted by Mary.
On a personal level I respect that.

BB writes that M&F indeed did ho to Skagen, the northernmost place in DK. Then to Tisvilde, which is located at the northernmost tip of Zealand. (Several of their friends have summer cottages there, and M&F have stayed there before.)
And also at Fredensborg. (Kancellihuset, no doubt.)

It looks like the pictures were taken in public places.

I’ve never understood the decision making process behind whose faces get blurred vs whose don’t in these sorts of pics, especially with kids. If the picture you’re taking is completely above board than why does anyone’s face need to be blurred? Why is the blurred out kid entitled to more privacy than, say, Josephine? It all seems very random.
