Hidden in the dark forest

It’s a long time since I have been in this dark part of the forest.

It really is an interesting experience to cycle through the darkness on a sunny day. This means that you have the forest to yourself – Well, almost ūüėČ

Hiking from Marsh to Beach

Sunken ancient roads and old bridges. I think it is fascinating to imagine what challenges people had in the old days when they travelled through the landscapes.

People have been very exposed to all kinds of weather with the equipment they had back then. Passages through wetlands must have been very challenging.

Ellemosen is a wonderful marsh with a 2,800-year-old paved path, and a 5,200-year-old pile-built bridge, which today is hidden underwater.

Now new paths have been established in the marsh, but for a completely different purpose. Birds and beavers are waiting for your visit.

Far out in the marsh is a very nice and cozy hide in an old pumping station.

Inside the hide, there are lots of information about what kind of birds you can see in the marsh.

The picture on the right shows the 2,800 old paved path, and on the horizon Tibirke Church is seen as a small red dot.

To the right, I see Arres√ł with Arren√¶s and to the left a glimpse of Kullen’s ‘blue mountains’ in Sweden. In the middle of it all lies Holl√łse Bredning, the marsh.

I continue my walk down to Skovkærsvej in the forest, Tisvilde Hegn and out to the sea.

Dizzy and Startled


On my way to the grocery a kind of cry from a duck attracts my attention. Beside the duck is a tree and up high is a tiny duckling wriggling itself out of a hole.
Suddenly it succeed and the duckling whirls through the air, to land dizzy and startled in the green grass.
Mother duck is in place with an urgent call. Five minutes later she walks proudly around in the grass with her ducklings. Mission accomplished ūüôā
