To the strains of West Side Story…..
“There’s a place for us, Somewhere a place for us. Peace and quiet and open air Wait for us Somewhere.” And maybe we’ve found the place, if not the akshull home, yet: a sleepy old harbour town on the south-east corner of our island, called Nysted (yes, Newstead, if you will).
No, I don’t think it really competes with Chesterfield or Pisa but you get the idea. We’re going to look at several pretty properties today, all a stone’s throw from the water, and the only windmills are way out to sea, where they should be. In summer it’s a popular port of call for sailors from all over the Baltic region and even hosts a visit from the Tall Ships every year. So off we go to see if the little Nisse, the elf who lives in a good home, is anywhere to be found thereabouts.
