Soooo nice weather! Sunny and the wind was predicted to gradually pick up during the day. What better to do than flying some kites?
Once again I’d played around with Google Maps looking for new places to fly and I found this place called Svartskjær, or Black Rock in English, that looked really promising!
So on Sunday afternoon, after having completed most of the domestic duties, I hit the road and headed for the Black Rock. Off course the place was ‘guarded’ by private roads, but I found a place to park the car not too far away. And after a fifteen minutes, give or take, walk I found myself at the Black Rock!
Wow! What a beautiful place … to fly!
The spot surely lives up to its name too. There is this big, black rock, almost cut in two by the glaciers covering this area thousands of years ago. The glacier is long gone, but its influence on the landscape is still showing!
I found this very cool “tunnel” that kind of cut the Black Rock in two halves and the wind was coming in from the exact right direction to fly the kite down into the tunnel!
It was just wide enough to do bicycle rotations with a clearing of inches only to the sides. Way cool! And the wind was incredibly stable coming in from the water. Absolutely glass smooth so keeping the kite totally stationary in the air was close to effortless.
If I did bring a video camera you say? Well,of course I did. I never leave home without one!
