A monday walk and it was a monday walk yesterday on the tiny danish island of Samsø
arrived very late last night (sunday) with the last ferry to visit my aged parents
the island has about 3700 inhabitants with 5 churches plus 2 smaller annex churches.
The island’s “capital” and superior largest town has about 800 inhabitants
this town’s largest building is the local church – a larger village church
the church barn in front is actually one of the largest in Denmark
it’s from the time where all farmers paid the pastor’s salary with grain.
When I had to take a photo of the building, there was suddenly a man on a bike
the atmosphere is very jovial on the island, so he shouted ‘Hello, nice weather’
although we didn’t know each other – I only lived on the island my first 4 years
and then only for short periods – but small communities contain an openness
we don’t meet by living in big cities – probably a large part due to curiosity.
My inspiration comes from “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes
this island of Samsø is perfect for inspiring walking or even better biking.
Nature is always only a few steps away.
The harbor’s local fish shop attracts shoppers.
The sea only a few steps away too.
Some believe this monday was a hot summer day..?
Yeah okay admit after walking about 15 km, so I join the bus home at my parents home.
I knew the bus driver, an old friend of mine.
