Nyhamnsläge - Lerhamn -
a Coastal Walk on pastures at
Öresund, about 7 km.
11 April 2010: Nyhamnsläge
center. I press the stop button on the bus. Walk
through the quiet and idyllic Nyhamnsläge down to the harbor.
Continue north on a short stretch of a coastal road. A stile lead
into the pasture. A gate is open, we use that instead. To the north is
a heath like beach strip. The shoreline is rocky. Walk on small ridge.
Pits may be ancient graves? Pass small ponds. On the horizon in the
north is the mountain Kullaberg. In the south the sun's rays are
shining over the sea at Höganäs. A natural bank of stones may
be the shoreline of the Sea Litorina for 7000-4000 years ago. Leaves
the pasture over a stile to the village Lerhamn. After the port is a
small beach. We take the path between the coast and houses. A stile
leads into Mölle pasture. Dry meadows, wetlands, ponds, rocky
beach. The only thing I see flowerings is a single daisy.
Oystercatchers and lapwings whirl through the air. Cormorants are
drying their wings, an unknown bird swims in the sea. The ponds are a
bit later in the season a place with Fire-bellied Toad concerts. Now
it's quiet. Cruising between bushes, rocks, and wet areas. Climbing
over a stile. Follows a stone wall at the water mill
(Vattenmöllan). Crossing the
streams on small bridges. A larger pond, maybe a Fire-bellied Toad
pond? We are now
close to Mölle. The hills of Kullaberg stretches. Leaves the
pasture via a stile near the shoreline. There is time for ice cream at
the port before the bus
