HANNA'S WALK

Jægersborg Dyrehave byder på mange historier, og naturligvis er haven blevet optaget på Unescos Verdensarvsliste 😎

Jeg har haft mange forskellige oplevelser i haven: En tåget morgen, hvor jeg knap kunne skimte slottet;  en dag, hvor regnen silede ned, og dyrene gik tæt forbi mig, imens de græssede; kronhjorte, der badede en steghed eftermiddag i august; en vinterdag, hvor sneen fik udsigterne til at minde mig om Norges fjeld; og ikke mindst min opdagelse af kolerakirkegården og forbindelsen til Hvidtjørnesletten.
I kan læse nogle af historierne, der ligger som links under billederne i dette indlæg.

Der er mange gode og spændende ture, jeg aldrig havde forventet at opleve i et landskab, der er så kultiveret.

Måske er det magien ved at tage på tur; at færdes på naturens præmisser og være åben over for nye indtryk –

Nu har jeg prøvet en Hubertus Jagt. Det var et rent tilfælde, jeg erfarede jagten fandt sted, og min nysgerrighed overvandt min trang til at søge mindre befærdede naturområder.

Dyrehaven var tilgæld så overbefolket, at jeg kun kunne se korte glimt af rytterne. Det kan jeg godt leve med, fordi jeg så en masse glade mennesker, som havde hver deres fest midt i trængslen.

På Eremitageslottet overværede Frederik og Mary begivenheden sammen med deres børn.

The Deer Park

Jægersborg Dyrehave offers many stories, and of course, the garden has been included on UNESCO’s World Heritage 😎

I have many different experiences in the garden: One foggy morning I could barely make out the castle; a day when the rain poured down and the animals went close past me while they were grazing; red deer, bathing on a hot afternoon in August; a winter day when the snow made the landscape look like the Norwegian mountains; and especially my discovery of a cholera cemetery and the connection to the Hawthorn plain.

I never thought one could experience that kind of things in a landscape that cultivated. Maybe that’s some of the magic when you are out for a walk,  to get about on the conditions of nature and be open to new impressions.

Now I have tried a Hubertusjagt. It was pure coincidence, I learned ‘the hunt’ took place that particular day, and my curiosity overcame my urge to seek less crowded ‘wilderness’ areas.

Busy, it was in the Deer Park that day, and I only saw brief glimpses of the riders. I can live with that, because I saw a lot of happy people having their own private party going on.

Frederik and Mary and their children were watching the event from the castle.

Experiences in the Twilight

After the night’s storm large amounts of water was pouring into the river from the old mill place. I stood a moment absorbed by the sound and sight. Shortly after entering the forest a sudden movement in the twilight kept my attention to the huge trees on my left side. There he was a very large stag moving like a king just in front of me.
At times like this one can feel very small being all alone in front of his majesty
His image stays frozen in my memory for a long time.
An amazing stroll in the dim daylight.

Walk softly or you might intrude the fairies.

A Hawthorn is considered a fairy tree, it is believed to be extremely bad luck to cut one down, remove branches, or even hang things upon it  in case you disturb the little folk.

The Hawthorn symbolizes fertility peace prosperity and binding. This tree is associated with sexuality and destruction. It was though that sleeping in a house with hawthorn blossoms would cause great misfortune.

Although on May Day the blossom are placed at the based of the May Pole.
The gathering of hawthorn blossoms was known has “goin a maying”.

In the legends of Cu Chulain a goddess pronounces a curse on him in crow form and flys to a thicket of hawthorns known has “hawthorn of the crow”. ¹.

Happy weekend to all of you ❤ …and a joyous walk 🙂

The Sea and the Ferry

Overfarten mellem Hundested og Rørvig er altid fuld af forventning. Rørvig er unik dansk natur, og sandstrandene hører til blandt de bedste i Danmark.
Vejret var flot for en uge siden. Vinden var tæt på stormstyrke, men med solskin.
Det var min plan at gå ud på Hov Vig Nakke, men vejret slog om undervejs, og sorte skyer lovede masser af regn, da færgen nåede Rørvig.
Jeg besluttede mig for en kortere tur, og tog færgen tilbage.
Det var godt det samme, da det bliver tidligt mørkt 🙂

‘I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in’
By John Muir

We went from Islands Brygge to Refshaleøen. A fun and interesting walk. Fun because of the colorful life along the canal, and interesting because we went through districts that exude interesting ship- and industrial history.
On Refshaleøen it is the history of the shipyard Burmeister & Wain that occupies our thoughts. Denmark’s largest shipyard and leading diesel engine manufacturer until 1996.

Vi gik fra Islands Brygge til Refshaleøen. En sjov og interessant gåtur. Sjov på grund af det farverige liv langs kanalen, og interessant, fordi vi gik gennem kvarterer, der rummer interessant skibs- og industrihistorie.
På Refshaleøen er det historien om skibsværftet Burmeister & Wain, som optager vores tanker. Danmark største skibsværft og førende dieselmotor producent indtil 1996.
