Caledonia

Kan I huske mit indlæg ‘Vandretur fra Kikhanerendens udspring til havet‘?

På den tur blev jeg opmærksom på den historie, der knytter sig til Vedbæk Sydstrand og ejendommen, Miramare.
Dronning Caroline Mathilde har boet på stedet, men der har endvidere været militær base og toldsted. I 1811 blev der bygget en skibsbro til toldstedet.

Da Danmarks første dampskib Caledonia begyndte at sejle fra København til Bellevue og videre op til Vedbæk i 1819, blev skibsbroen betragtet som en oplagt mulighed for at modtage landliggerne.
Med sine store skovhjul kunne dampskibet dog ikke lægge til ved broen. 250px-Caledonia2Det gav fiskerne en ekstra indtægt, når de sejlede og bar gæsterne ind på land, som skildret på C.W. Eckersbergs skitse.

På Bellevue Strand blev der ligeledes bygget en anløbsbro i 1819, den blev revet ned i 1970.

Caledonia blev bygget i 1815 i Port-Glasgow af James og Charles Wood. Prøv at se de historiske billeder fra Glasgow på dette link: Sailing down the Clyde

Her finder I Enrum Dam, som jeg kom forbi, da jeg fulgte Kikhanerenden på min vej ud til Vedbæk og Øresund.
Enrum Dam er smukt beliggende, og et meget stemningsfuldt sted.

God tur og husk regntøj 🙂

  1. That is interesting Hanna. And with a slice of Scottish history thrown in!
    Cheers, Alen

    • Hi Alen. I found the photos filled with atmoshere. I had a great time studying the ships and habour and I’m not finished yet. Really set my imagination going. You can almost smell the tar and the coal.
      Cheers,
      Hanna

  2. I loved the vibrant blues and the clouds and water in these pictures, Hanna. They are gorgeous. It looks like a wonderful place to visit and as you’ve written has some interesting history behind it. Have a beautiful day! 🙂

    • Hi Jane. It is a great place to visit and it certainly was the day I went along the small stream, Kikhanerenden. I like to explore the nature following tracks and traces. You never know what pops up regarding history and stories. This time I was ‘rewarded’ with the story about the first steamer i Denmark, Caledonia built in Glasgow, Scotland.
      Wish you a lovely day too 🙂 🙂

    • Querida Magnoliae. Siempre me gusta el mar. La gran vue, nubes y pájaros. Largo olas perezosas o los mares agitados. La impresión visual global, el olor del mar y el sonido de los guijarros siendo empujado alrededor de la orilla del mar con el mismo ritmo calmante. Me encanta que 🙂
      Un abrazo,
      Hanna

    • Muchas gracias, Leo. Mar inspira y contribuye con gran energía. Tienes razón es el impresionante paisaje.
      Saludos,
      Hanna

    • Hi there, James 🙂 The pictures are from the start of June. You can almost feel the low temperature despite the sunny weather but it was one of those days when the sun gained power and cumulus clouds were towering. I simply love days like that 🙂

    • Hi Karen. Thank you for visiting. Today has been magnificent. On my way home I have explored areas I’ve never been before. What a thrill 🙂
      I wish you a lovely evening 🙂
      Hanna

      • I am glad you had a great day, best wishes for you.
