Lyø - June 2014

Seneca, Katrina, Gravesen and I started from Dyreborg around 14 o'clock. We were promised flat, calm and warm weather for these days. It became the truth.!

We agreed to go past the eastern side of Bjørnø, before crossing over to the causeway separating Avernakø in two, where we had a short portage, to get afloat again.

Then we followed the coast up north, to Avarnakø harbour, we were in dire need of some icecream.!

 From here we aimed straight towards Lyø, where Irene and Tobias already had arrived - on bicycles. We arrived around 19 o'clock. Time for a bath and dinner (Expedition Foods as usual). After the camp were set, it was time for cake, whisky, sweets - and whatever people could pull off their kayaks and bicycles.

We went for a walk on the island in the evening, down to the harbour. Beautiful weather, sky, clouds and light.

Lyø harbour by night.

Breakfast the following morning.

Irene and Tobias, my wife and son, are leaving - as are we.

Next day we paddled clockwise around Lyø, towards Knolden and then Dyreborg. On our way we made a stop at Klokkestenen.

 We had our lunch - and some sunbathing - at Knolden.

Well back in Dyreborg, we trained rolling with a loaded kayak, with no jacket on nor buoyancy: max chill, least support, heaviest kayak. It all went quite well.

Circumnavigation of Tåsinge - May 2014

 We chose to circumnavigate the island clock-wise. We did also round Siø and Strynø. Both with breaks, Strynø also with ice cream, cake and swimming.

After 28 km the set camp at a friends place on Tåsinge. Coffee, more cake, whisky.

At dinnertime, it was once again obvious that Expedition Foods provide us with the best taste and flavour, in de-hydrated foods.

Had a bit of rain Sunday morning, so until the tents were dry, we went for a walk.

It was almost noon, until we were afloat again. Through the sound off Svendborg, back to Lunkebugten. The weather had turned nice, warm and dry again - long breaks, ice cream, snooze and swimming. On one occasion a melted chocolate bar was consumed as well - hardly any chocolate left in the face afterwards....

We arrived to Lunkebugten after 24 km, but someone had stolen the water, so we had to haul/carry the boats the last 100 metre or so. This could off course not spoil the impact from the trip.

Shallow water is no excuse for not doing a bit of washing. :-)
