M?ns Klint

Last spring we took a little vacation to a place in Denmark called M?ns Klint, or Moen's cliff. It is a huge chalk formation ending in dramatic cliffs by the ocean. It's a great place to find fossils, especially when fresh material is uncovered by the winter storms. Fredrik had a hammer and goggles, and we found some cool looking worm and anemonie fossils.

After that we went to a castle nearby to see the gardens. In the parking lot we saw a peacock inspecting the grills of all the cars, one after the other. Couldn't figure it out. What did the peacock care about bumpers, headlights and license plates? It turned out he was eating the insects the tourists had collected during their travels.
