Sunday around noon, quiet, mild wind, fresh air, a few good looking birds and three seals browsed the basins.
Humming like a wind harp
I decided to try yet another walk in the neighborhood of Struer. This time a part of the walk called “Odby Sløjfen” (The Odby Loop). In order to concentrate on the walking I only brought the mobile cam… which is convenient for weight but doesn’t stop me from shooting a few too many pictures.
It was a magnificent go-trip that gave a varied training for the body as well, due to the shifting conditions, from pebbly/stony beach to sandy beach to the gravel or asphalt roads on top of the cliff. The walk took me 2 hours and it was worth every second. As always in this part of the world, the northwest Jutland part of the Danish country side, the sky is high and the wind and waves strong and refreshing.
The following few pictures are from the beach stretch south of the 30 meter high cliff west of Odby. Nissum Bredning, which is the westernmost part of the mighty Limfjorden (it connects to the North Sea at Thyborøn), is the water on the pictures. The “mountains” topped by Nørre Nissum church is seen on the other side.
And here comes the cliff
Then climb the cliff, actually via a good and not so steep little road.
On top, and then the walk continued through the cultivated landscape – and they have some good views from up here.
After the little village Odby the walk continues back to the beach where I came from
