Footprints seen from above

View from above has some advantages – to old dried out canals too.
Hanging with a parachute and a long line fastened to a motorboat.
Below there are some youngsters with shorter lines after other motorboats.
As long as we aren’t too close to each other, not the right place for socializing.

Details are best seen with the feet down on earth.

Escape route from the viking age on the tiny danish island of Samsø.
Vikings weren’t always popular in the surrounding area
– they didn’t always know the difference between “yours or mine”.
Sometimes or often they needed to hide from persecutors.
The island had a half-closed bay on the east side, where the viking castles lay.
Therefore, they dug a canal out to the west side of the island, about 100 meters.
Then they didn’t have to go all the way around the island to their hiding place
– when they came from the robberies from the west.
It wasn’t that deep so the boats had to be pulled through
– and couldn’t easily be seen from the sea.
Nowadays it is dry, but a sculpture illustrates their reality at that time.

Walk inspired by “Restlessjo” and her captivating “Monday walk” themes.
