Boating & Biking Adventures

🚴‍♂️…easy biking…🚴‍♂️

We are enjoying this fantastic island, either on foot or by bike. It is small but once you reduce the pace there are many things to discover, which we never appreciated on our previous visits. Weather and temperatures allow, or better invite, for the daily swim in the sea or just relaxing while absorbing the warmth from the sun.

Boat work is progressing slowly in accordance with the natural pace adhering to this land pile in the sea, called Anholt.

SY Magic Cloud with Johannes and his cheerful crew left this morning while we decided to stay on for a few more days.

🚴‍♂️…Moving Dune…🚴‍♂️

The photo above shall illustrate the insignificance of the human being walking across the dune in context to mother nature. Further down the road towards the beach we get reminded of the rubbish Germany left behind after WW2. A thoughtful ride under the sun!

🚴‍♂️…Dunes Strolling…🚴‍♂️

Today‘s short focus ride took me out into the magnificant dunes South of Skagen. Magnificant not only because of its sheer size but also its kind of composition. Fantastic gravel biking through unspoiled colorful nature. 👌

More 🚴‍♂️ in Skagen

🚴‍♂️…Biking Skagen…🚴‍♂️

I took an easy ride today to stroll around a bit here in Skagen and it took me towards the Northern tip of Jutland, Skagens Odde, and afterwards to Gammel Skagen.

As the late Scandinavian summer seems to be back in this part of the world, let‘s cross fingers, it will stay on for some more Boating & Biking Adventures before we allow ourselves and the lady for a winter break.

🚴‍♂️…Beach & Battle…🚴‍♂️

Two places were on my target list today. The splendid beaches of Nairn at the outskirts of Inverness and Fort George, a fortress build to control the Scottish Highlands but has never seen any battle. Nice ride under the sun!

🚴‍♂️…Loch Tarff…🚴‍♂️

I am glad we decided to stay a day longer in Fort Augustus for me to see Loch Tarpp nearby as inspired by Jan. Amazing Highland scenery although some 2.5km stretch required me to push the bike along. Fantastic 🚴‍♂️!

🚴‍♂️…Loch & River Oich…🚴‍♂️

Loch Oich and its connecting river present themselves in a more diverse landscape compared to Loch Lochy, the first Loch we passed through on our journey through the Caledonian Canal from West to East. Good 🚴‍♂️ tarmac!

Fair winds…

🚴‍♂️…Harry & Potter…🚴‍♂️

Well, Harry & Potter connects me slightly differently to my focused 🚴‍♂️ ride today. Apparently the Glenfinnan Viaduct is linked to fantasy around Harry Potter but my connection goes rather back to work in South Korea and a lovely dog 🐕‍🦺 named Potter.

SY Hullu Poro safely moored in Banavie.

Oban – Slate Islands

Today‘s focus ride covered one of the famous Slate Islands – Easdale. It not only used to be the center of the Scottish slate industry for almost three centuries (!) but still, until today, remains the smallest of the inhabited Inner Hebrides Islands.

A more than remarkable international event taking place here are the World Stone Skimming Championships 😅 hosted every year, in September.

A fantastic 🚴‍♂️ today!
