Lonely hillside tree on tiny danish island of Samsø.
(the title is borrowed from a Aksel Sandemose book title)
Walk inspired by “Restlessjo” and her captivating “Monday walk” themes.
Straight coastlines, no the twisted are more exciting and longer too.
House for tourists, free to be alone – but on a tiny island people aren’t far away.
A cute little beach bird, maybe a beach boy too – don’t know.
Old equipment on a small former farm.
Field boulders used as base stones.
Ancient tomb place.
Even on a tiny island, neighbors can be on distance.
Often coastal areas can often provide “headache” in terms of what is this and that.
So at least for us who aren’t professionals – then we have to ask.
So fishing nets for drying, protective breakwater
– and a bird from the very large Sandpipers family,
– this “Tringa nebularia” knows exactly what it is looking for.
Speaking of the bird so it has almost as many totally different names
– as there are languages in the world, neither consensus nor logic in them all.
Busy fellow, maybe heard that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence.?
Overnight at the jetty at the small fishing village, probably the water was too cold.?
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.
Soon upcoming spring on the tiny danish island of Samsø.
The colors are fresh bright and clear with a cute “shy” resilience
– not as powerful and dominant as later over summer and autumn.
Life doesn’t come by itself, we have to do something ourselves too.
