What I Saw; 29 Aug 2015

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

Around Nissum Bredning


After that the persistent rain during the morning had stopped and through the clouds some sunlight could be seen, I decided to take a drive around Nissum Bredning.


First stop Draget, at Lyngs which is a fine spot on the eastern coastline of the “bredning”. Here one can get a fine impression of the inner parts of Nissum bredning – overlooking the coast from Toftum bjerge over Nørre Nissum to Thyborøn.

Then Agger havn, with (for me) a fresh view of Krik Vig towards the south tip of Agger tange. The way the sunlight played here made me think of something by the artist Olafur Eliasson. The western wind was however getting cruel.

The beach at Agger… of course, always worth the visit.

I was doubting if I really should take the drive to the ferry at the south tip of Agger tange. I decided for, which was good.

During the winter the ferry runs hourly over to Thyborøn. I had to wait half an hour but I didn’t mind. This is a great spot.
