Hallo lieber Gast

Hallo lieber Gast, willkommen in den klaren Weiten im Norden Deutschlands, begleite mich auf meinen Pfaden durch die Natur, Ausflügen und Reisen, auf der Suche nach Ruhe und Anregung. Entdecke mit mir Linien und Freiräumen, die die Perspektiven, die Vielfalt der Farben und Formen dieser Welt und unserer Natur uns bieten und genieße Momente der Nachdenklichkeit, Poesie und philosophischen Worte großer Dichter und Denker, manchmal auch meine eigenen lyrischen Texte dazu.

Schön, dass Du Dir die Zeit genommen hast - wunderbar, Dich hier zur wissen!

" Ich muss mich ganz im Stillen mit meiner Außenwelt reiben,. sonst werde ich untauglich für die Welt."

My North - Island Sylt, it's all about skies


During the last few years we've spend every April/March some wonderful extended weekends on the island Sylt, North Sea. Not sure about this tradition this year, but I long for the sea very. 

The lighthouse "Rotes Kliff" put into service in 1913 was looked after by the lighthouse keepers of the Kampen tower. The tower is 11 meters high with a firing height of 23 meters. In 1975 the red cliff light went out and the tower was decommissioned. Today it is a popular marker for hikers along the coast between Kampen and List.

During our walk to the Lighthouse "Red Cliff" this time the weather changed in minutes for sun to blizzard.

But after a few minutes the strong wind blows the heavy clouds away and the sun comes out again. 

"April weather, rain and sunshine both together."

West Lighthouse, List. The "Ellenbogen" is the northernmost point in Germany and the dangerous point for seafarers has two lighthouses very close together. There’s a private street with 6,00 € toll to the Ellenbogen from List 4 km.

East Lighthouse, List is traditional painted with white and red stripes. 

 'April, April, laugh thy girlish laughter, and the moment after, Weep thy girlish tears, April.' 
― Angus Wilson

And one good thing about cold, and constantly changing weather is too, that there are really fewer people around you. And all is yours, the land, the wide, the clouds, and the rain too. 

And while it's impossible to hike dry-shod, I really enjoy these island days.

Happy and wonderful April for you all, dear friends. 

Cordially yours,
