Kayak days

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.”

There I found a nice little cove with a clear view to the east, I have never been here before.

The orange dots are for it to be easier to follow the paths of the island

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.. 🙂
