Great night in the beach house, breakie first then off to Hejnsvig to find the Church my great great grandparents were either baptised or married in. It is showering and very cold but not unpleasant. The countryside is very sparse with mainly farms of some sort. All the houses are well maintained and very big.
We found the lovely church and walked through the grounds to identify if any family names were on the grave stones.
We drove onto Billund to keep our promise to the Raines boys to get some Lego from Legoland. A very appertising bakery was calling out to us and we couldn’t refuse the hospitality of the warm friendly atmosphere...plus free wifi so we could connect to the outside world. This was home for the next couple of hours...lunching and sampling the goodies.
Yes we finally made a good choice
The global headquarters of Legoland highlighted some amazing designs like this one that has even seat belts made from Lego. This lego sign was made up of over 12,000 pieces of little white, black, yellow and red people...and in town they're constructing a new pyramid shaped house built on the lego brick design...the main space is underground and the pyramid section will let the sunlight in.
Its a nice thought that the design people at Lego headquarters come to play...not work...as one of the staff explained.
Following the family history trail John got a contact from the Billund Bibliotek (Library & Cultural Centre) that we will follow up tomorrow at Grindsted.
