Once I tried to paddle around the lake Vanern, the biggest lake in northern europe (550km trip) I only manage 125km of them.
One day there was a fantastic weather change all day long, it ended up with hail, rain, heavy wind and some lightning.
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Change.”
I started as usual from Ekenäs port, this time in a lovely weather.
I steered to the southeast to N Hökön
There I found a nice little cove with a clear view to the east, I have never been here before.
An amazing view from the tent
In the next bay, I saw a beaver
Early the next morning 4:45 Sunrise
At lunch-time I packed the equipment in the kayak and went against Bösshamn
Up with the tent again on Bösshamn
After dinner I took a walk with the camera
The orange dots are for it to be easier to follow the paths of the island
A new friend under the tent
It was a bath every day, still warm in the water, 17-18º C
And I finally got a picture of a Sea Eagle, a little awkward to take a picture of these in a short distance. They have eyes like a hawk.. 🙂
On my way back to Ekenäs
A map on my 3 day paddle. Approx 32km
Today we made a visit to my brother’s summer cottage at “Öckenviken” Vänern.
Our dog is a mix of Landseer and Leonberger, in other words, a dog who is very happy in the water.
One fun thing is that Molly is constantly trying to rescue people who are swimming. She swims straight towards the person to be rescued, then she turns around, then it’s just grabbing the collar or coat on her. If you drop the grip, she stops. No pictures, but I´n gonna film it next time.
Strange dog. 🙂
