The heels of village people

M 010

A walk in one of the small villages of Samsø – captured earlier this summer.

The idyllic village pond was in the old days used by the smallholdings in the village
to water their cows, so in the mornings and in the evenings it was filled with drinking cows.

My inspiration comes from wonderful “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes
this area is perfect for inspiring walking or even better biking.

The old bell tower, it’s over 150 years old
it was used to call the sun up and down
or warning of fire or other threats
also at funerals, weddings plus one could buy a private bell-ringing.
The local church is located 3 ½ miles from the village
so the church bells weren’t always heard clear.

M 011

A couple of cute german tourists just come with the little ferry
even on a tiny island which is 28 km long and only 9 kilometers at its widest point
there easily can be some doubts about the direction is right and help is needed
they stopped a man on mountain bike and asked if he lived on the island.
My answer was
“No, but I was born here once in the past century”

      So glad you enjoyed the walk, really do appreciate… 🙂

      The bell tower together with the small village pond and the old buildings makes an idyllic atmosphere – sometimes you could get the feeling that time stands still, this is one of the moments here… 🙂

  1. Interesting, nice and idyllic pictures… Great! The bell tower is quite odd to my eyes 😉
    Me too I was born in the last century 😀

  2. “It’s fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A.
    You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal
    You can do whatever you feel”
    OOPS, wrong Village People! My bad! 😎
    Love your pics and post as always! 🙂

  3. Kære Drake. Det er aldrig kedeligt med billeder fra din fødeø. Klokketårnet har en speciel plads i mit hjerte.
    Mange gode hilsner til dig,
    Hanna

      Jeg nyder altid mine ‘gæstevisiter’ på Samsø, når jeg besøger mine gamle forældre – klokketårnet og gadekæret i Nordby er fascinerende hver gang uanset årstid – de bedste hilsner til dig og dine… 🙂

      Yeah you have lived on a very small island, so you know how it is
      – I believe it’s a good thing hidden in our packpacks … 😀
