Bright sunshine and almost no wind tempted us to visit the nearby nature reserve Ulön Dannemark by kayak. A wonderful day in May gave us astonishing experience of blue sky, blue sea and lots of plants in blossom. The air was full of sounds from different birds that just had arrived. Spring is in the air!
We went ashore on a sandy beach for a walk on the island. The shell shingle beds were studded with thousands of cowslips. You could even feel the smell of them by walking around.
The path meandered in the little valley and took us to the far west of the island where we met the open sea. Impressing!
Sheep are grazing in the nature reserve to keep the landscape open. Perfect gardeners.
We launched again and rounded the island to find a new sheltered beach. This part of the island invited us to another walk with new views.
By the campfire we had a nice meal and a perfect end of the day.
In a slight tail wind we headed back to our starting point Rådalen Heestrand – a miniature little settling of boathouses and a great place to start a short or a longer kayaking adventure.
