Diversity

It has been a unique place to explore once. Old hulls, small wooden houses, giant cranes between towering container stacks and sand piles as high as mountains.
Old chairs and sofas forgotten by their owners stood deserted and alluring with empty seats. Small coves with construction waste taken over by the most beautiful flowers and grasses. There were many great fishing spots, where a folding chair could be used along with a packed lunch and a good cup of coffee.

There are still a small area with small wooden houses where people pursuits with their boats and flowers or repairs of a weather vane.
But I recognize a difference. Small improvised roadblocks pop up like dandelions in asphalt, so that curious urban residents don’t disturb the quietness that still exist in the area.
They are almost gone the intriguing places, and what is left is fenced … and yet, out there where a large cruise ship docks, here’s still cozy activities.

Fiskeri og Badning i Nordhavn

Længe leve mangfoldigheden ❤

Det har været et unikt sted at udforske en gang. Gamle skibsskrog, små træhuse, gigantiske kraner mellem tårnhøje container stakke og sand bunker så høje som bjerge.

Gamle stole og sofaer glemt af deres ejere stod øde og dragende med tomme pladser. Små vige med byggeaffald overtaget af smukke blomster, græsser og blåt hav. Overalt var der gode fiskesteder, hvor en klapstol kunne ‘indtages’ sammen med frokosten og en god kop kaffe.
Der er stadig et lille område med små træhuse, hvor folk sysler med deres både og blomster, eller reparerer en vejrhane. Men jeg opdager en forskel. Små improviserede vejspærringer popper op som mælkebøtter i asfalt, så nysgerrige byboere ikke forstyrrer den smule fred, der stadig eksisterer i området.
De er næsten væk de spændende steder, og hvad der er tilbage er indhegnet … og alligevel, derude, hvor et stort krydstogtskib ligger til kaj, her er stadigvæk hyggelige og sjove aktiviteter.

    1. Thank you, And. Concrete jungles create flooding. We want lots of flowers and room for relaxing, fun and enjoyable activities 🙂 ❤

    1. Thanks a lot!!!
      It is a thrill to see how nature takes over as time passes ❤ The houses express how much people care about the area. There are many peculiar details to study 🙂

  1. What a charming and delightful description you give and the blues in the photographs are so vivid! What gorgeous weather you had. Another beautiful post. Thank you, Hanna. 🙂

    1. Hi Jane. The summer or what’s left of it has decided to stay for a little while 🙂
      Hopefully there will be some blue left for posts to come 😀
      Thanks for visiting with your lovely comments ❤

  2. What a fantastic place, Hanna. I want to pack my rucksack and head there straigh away. I love those two little statues gazing out of the window, just watching the world go by. I wonder if they talk to each other when nobody is looking.
    All the best, Alen
    PS Did you go for a swim yourself? It looks like fun but I bet the water is cold.

    1. Alen, I’m absolutely certain that the small statues are having a serious talk. What you don’t know is that they can watch the ships going abroad. I think they are making plans for new adventures just like the one you are experiencing at the moment.
      Several people tried to persuade me to jump into the water and I love diving so I was very tempted but I didn’t bring swimming suit or dry clothes.
      My clothes was likely to dry on the long way home on the bike ride, but it’s not very comfortable 🙂
      The water is cold at the moment due to the late summer start 🙂
      Lovely to hear from you,
      Hanna
