    Die Ostsee umrundet

    July 25 in Denmark ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Die erste Etappe unserer Reise ist nun abgeschlossen. Wir hatten lauter besondere Momente und Begegnungen beim Meeresmalen in 10 Ländern. In unserem Kreativbüro im Vorzelt entsteht unterwegs ein besonderes Bilderbuch über die Landschaften, die gemalten Bilder und die Menschen und ihre Geschichten, die sie uns beim Malen erzählen. Für dieses suchen wir nun einen Verlag und es soll im kommenden Jahr erhältlich sein.
    Das Leben draußen und im Bulli, ein Hund, der ständig im Meer schwimmt und die Nächte mit Meeresrauschen, - das alles ist ein großes Glück. 🍀
    Wir sagen dem schönen Norden jetzt Farvel und freuen uns auf die rauen Nordsee- und Atlantikküsten im Nordwesten Europas, die nun auf uns warten.

    The first stage of our journey is now completed. We had many special moments and encounters while painting in 10 countries. In our creative office in the awning we create a special picture book about the landscapes, the painted pictures and the people and their stories they tell us while painting. For this we are now looking for a publisher and it should be available next year.
    The life outside and in the Bulli, a dog, which swims constantly in the sea and the nights with sea noise, - all this is a large luck. 🍀
    We now say Farvel to the beautiful north and look forward to the rough North Sea and Atlantic coasts in the northwest of Europe that are now waiting for us.

    Most Southerly Point in Denmark!

    September 10, 2018 in Denmark ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    The three of us are perched on top of the clay cliffs at Gedser Odde on Falster Island. The pointed peninsula is the most southerly place in Denmark and we have panoramic views of the sea. Scandlines ferries, sailing from Rostock, occasionally power past, on their way to dock at Gedser a few kilometres to the north west of us. Close by the red and white Gedser Fyr (lighthouse) stands guard, ready to warn vessels of their proximity to this finger of land.

    We left the friendly Lolland Island marina where we'd spent two restful days and stopped in at a large Fotex supermarket. We really appreciate the range of organic products available in Danish supermarkets and we stocked up. Interestingly the receipt grouped the items under their product types rather than the order in which they came. Soon afterwards we crossed over the straights between Lolland and Falster Island, via the 1km long bridge at Nykøbing and headed south. Gedser
    mainstreet was lined with poles proudly flying the red and white Danish flags, ensuring those who arrived on the ferry from Rostock knew in no uncertain terms that this was no longer Germany.

    Our quiet overnight car park had a set of wooden steps leading down to a stoney beach where battered wooden groynes did their best to preserve the shoreline. A sign told us the building a few hundred metres away was a bird station and we were keen to explore, but Vicky was having a bad health day health so Will stayed and looked after her. As has often been the case, Martha proved herself a great 'bird station' when a Sparrowhawk used the stairpost as a perch and we were able to observe it from just 15m away! Will also managed to spot a seal poking its head out from the waves! Despite the uninviting overcast skies he couldn't resist following in its err... flippersteps? and going for an evening dip. We were at the most southerly point in the country after all!

    Offshore we could see the same wind farm as we'd had sight of from Stubberup Harbour on the previous two nights. From our new position we got to view the setting sun colour the sky behind the turbines come dusk. Night time brought wind and rain but the latter was intermittent and in the morning we nipped out between the spells to explore the bird station and very tip of the peninsula. With schools back in full swing and the weather driving many indoors, it was just the two of us most of the time. Buried in the grass alongside the path leading to the point, we found a dozen or so tiles decorated by children with images of local wildlife such as seals and Eider ducks. Approaching the building we saw coordinates on the wall in large white letters, reminding us of last year's journey to the Arctic Circle and the most northerly point in mainland Europe, where we frequently saw the latitude of these significant spots. We couldn't resist a photo! The centre itself displayed boards with information on the windfarm and local wildlife. It told us there were 162 turbines, but of course Will already new this. If you put a mathematician in sight of such an array for 3 days what else do you expect them to do but count? Interestingly the display showed an image of the flight paths of tracked birds and how they interacted with the windfarm. Many skirted its perimeter but it seemed a considerable number plotted a straight course between the rows.

    We made our way down to the beach and clambered out on an uneven stone jetty, taking this to be the most southerly point (we may well have been mistaken but it provided a good focal point). To the east a number of rocks stood proud of the waves. Cormorants roosted on two, while Eider Ducks occupied a low platform that they could easily hop up and down from.

    We made it back to Martha just as the rain began, so quickly packed up and set off to find our next adventure.

    Stubberup Harbour, Lolland

    September 8, 2018 in Denmark ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    The waves lap at the stone harbour wall just a few metres to our left and ahead of us an array of colourful little boats bob in the small marina, tied between a weather beaten wooden jetty and mooring stakes. Ripples slap gently against their hulls. There are four swans who live close by, dipping their heads into the shallow waters of the bay from day break to nightfall. Larger groups are stationed farther away, near a great flock of geese that is occasionally disturbed and takes to the skies amidst a cacophony of loud honks. On the horizon is a huge wind farm, its turbines appearing in miniature because of the distance between us.

    It was a pleasant 50km drive through rolling farmland from the north shore of Lolland to the hamlet of Stubberup, here on the south east of the island. It was lunch time when we arrived and Will thought there might be a café in one of the earth-red wooden huts set back from the water with a few picnic tables outside. He enquired at the only one open and was told that it was a club, but we were welcome to join them for a beer. In need of food we retreated to the van but returned later and bought our Tuborg Classics from a beer bottle vending machine on the wall. The dozen people in the cabin are friendly and encouraged us to sit with them. We were going to sit outside because of the chain smoking but didn't want to turn down their hospitality so pulled up a couple of chairs near the doorway. The people were really friendly, telling us they were part of a boat club with 120 members but only 5 boats. They asked us where we were from, where we are going and recommended some places to visit.

    Taking our leave we wandered up the country lane. Several of our friends have recommended Geocaching and there was one hidden just 200m away. Many of the houses in Stubberup are fairytale timber frame and thatch rooved affairs, with well tended gardens growing apples, veg and late summer flowers. We found the cache wedged at the base of a tree, a plastic tub containing a collection of trinkets. Signinh the ledger, took a peg and left a small float.

    Over the two days we stayed here Vicky worked on completing the new cover for the passenger seat. It was tricky because of the leatherette material she'd previously backed in foam and because of the curves and angles of all the different bits, not to mention the elasticated base. Needless to say she was very relieved when she finished. It was too windy for canoeing most of the time so Will whiled away the hours fishing, swimming, doing some more fishing, then some more swimming... you get the idea! The marina was a quiet place but a few people wandered to the end where Will had set up his rods. Some went for a short swim off the dedicated platform and many struck up a conversation with Will. Like the people we met in the club, the locals he spoke to were very friendly, asking why we weren't staying longer and encouraging us to return.

    The whole area is reportedly good for star gazing, so both nights we cast our eyes to the firmament. Most of the time it was too cloudy but later on the second night the haze cleared and Will got a great view. He even got to see a shooting star!

    Farø Island

    September 11, 2018 in Denmark ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    Farø is the third Danish island we've visited in as many days and by far the smallest with an area of less than 1km sq. and a population of only 5 people! It is however well connected. The E55 links it via the Farø bridges to both the island of Falster, where we woke up this morning and Zealand, the largest of Denmark's islands and home to its capital city. To the south east, Farø is joined via causeway to a third island, Bogø, which is where we intend to travel tomorrow.

    The day was rainy and windy when we woke and this is the way it stayed. We filled and emptied Martha Motorhome at a transport centre then took the south Farø cable bridge over the Storstrømmen Sound to tiny Farø. With a span of 290m the bridge was longer than the island was wide! It may have been small but our island of choice for the night hosted a good sized parking area where we could see half a dozen other vans and lines of lorries. Vicky wasn't feeling up to exploring so we parked up with a view of the bridge and she snuggled up with her throw, a hot water bottle and a nice big cuppa and that's how we spent the rest of the day.

    Nykøbing

    October 28 in Denmark ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

    Nykøbing Falster 
    ist eine Hafenstadt in Dänemark und liegt an der Westküste von Falster. Die Stadt bildet eine eigene Kirchspielsgemeinde (dän. Sogn) Nykøbing Falster Sogn, die bis 1970 zur Harde Falsters Sønder Herred im damaligen Maribo Amt gehörte, danach zur Nykøbing Falster Kommune im damaligen Storstrøms Amt, deren letzterer beider Verwaltungssitz die Stadt war. Die Kommune ist im Zuge der Kommunalreform zum 1. Januar 2007 in der Guldborgsund Kommune in der Region Sjælland aufgegangen, deren Verwaltungssitz wiederum Nykøbing Falster ist.
    Der Ursprung des Ortsnamens „Nykøbing“ reicht ins 13. Jahrhundert zurück. Bereits um 1200 erhielt die Stadt Marktrechte, aber im Unterschied zu älteren Städten wie Ribe oder Viborg stieß Nykøbing erst 1560 neu (ny) zum Kreis der Städte mit Marktrechten (købstad) hinzu. Der Anhang „Falster“ dient zur Unterscheidung von zwei anderen dänischen Städten gleichen Namens, Nykøbing Mors und Nykøbing Sjælland. In Schriftform wird der Name der Stadt häufig mit „Nykøbing F“ wiedergegeben.
