a coastal walk Bunkeflostrand
(meadows) - Lernacken (Öresund Bridge) - Limhamn
18 April 2010: A clear blue
sky. Something is missing, but what? No aircraft dash. Icelandic
volcanic ash has its advantages. I take the train to Malmö and
then bus to Bunkeflostrand south of Malmö. Disembark the bus at
the Bunkeflostrand church. Here it is overcasted. Goes through the
residential neighborhood to the meadows at the sea. Via a stile do I
get in to the today deserted meadows. A ditch blocks, cross again a
stile to a bicycle path. Large signs tells about the meadows. Flora,
fauna, and birds are described. An elderly man comment it with "Not
much to see today '. It is hazy. I leave the bike path and follow a
path down to the water. Crossing once again a stile and down to the
water's edge. The Öresund Bridge is lost in an arc into the haze
over the Sound. Stand at a lagoon for a while and listen to sea birds.
Do not see them. Continuing on the path over a stile, pass a Per Albin
fort on a path through the reeds to a gravel path. A stile allows me
again to come down to the water. The path brings me back to the bike
path that goes up on Lernacken. Jogging, walking, cycling, many are out
and moving. Some sit and enjoy the view over the meadows to the south.
Other take pictures. Leaves the path, and follows a path along the
water. Two men try their fishing luck. Scattered sunlight is glistening in
the water. The bridge grows. Get back on the walk under the bridge. A
young willow has taken root among the rocks. Bypasses what I think was
a showroom during the bridge construction. Looks closed out. It is not
closed, it is used for conference activities by Luftkastellet.
Continuing on the path next to the water to a cycle path. Then I walk
along Sibbarp bath with lawns and bathing bridges. Passing the cold
bath house (Kallbadhuset), off to the marina in Limhamn. There are no
boats in the water, the boats are still on land. I have time with an
ice cream in the restaurant Kajutan before busline 32 takes me to the
center of Malmö.
