Grandmother walking with kids as a way to build both relations to each other and to the places

Grandmother showing grandchildren the landscapes

Text and drawing by Frits Ahlefeldt –

In the old days people would often hold their vacation close to home, taking a small wagon and walking along the beach is one of them. I met this old lady on a wide beach, walking with her grandkids along the sea.

Every night they would sleep in a small tent, and along the way they would share stories, explore things the sea had brought to land and get to know both the landscape and each other much better
