I couldn't resist trying it, it didn't work. Strand is a poetic word for beach in English. Obviously, it comes from one of the Scandinavian languages.

I've seen måse before in addition to måke. What is the difference?

Dialects. I'm from Oslo and say "måke", but I have many friends from other parts of Norway who say "måse". Both forms are accepted in writing, both in Bokmål and Nynorsk.
