At Borgeby castle has been built along Lödde river an
accessibility adapted boardwalk.
It runs a few hundred meters along Lödde river. As made for a picnic in a
beautiful summer evening. The boardwalk goes below the view with famous love
poems. There stands today a tent and flower urns on the platform. Paddlers
passing on the river. Where the boardwalk begins is a canoe place (canoes can
be rented at the castle), from there go east a path surrounded by trees. After
a few hundred meters you will come to pasture with a pond, where some herons
can be seen. A flock of birds taking off, flying around and landing again. Too
long away to see what it is. The trail continues up to the church. From there
back to the castle on a cut grass path surrounded by nettles.

Ernst Norlindmuseum, cafe, etc..
Ernst Norlindmuseet in Borgeby castle has limited open hours. Last
time I was
there, it was closed (see below). I have looked up the website,
is open. After a few warm, sunny days, today it is overcast and
passes by. The artist Ernst Norlind married Hanna who owned the
they made the castle into a cultural center around 1900. The gate
tower is an
Ernst Norlind museum. There is a narrow steep staircase, it is
difficult to adapt
an old castle. Ernst stands as cardboard figure and greet you. He
was known for his
stork paintings, he painted them because they sold well. Texts tell
about him, in a
quote he talks about his stork technology. He painted other things
as well. One room
housed his studio. There are a lot of other things, a stork, an
watches over a dinner table. On one floor is the son Staffans
paintings. Not as interesting, I think, that has no major art talent
of. It also has temporary exhibitions, this time Bo Ahlström,
no one I know
of. Rather abstract but colorful. In the main building are also
Coffee time. The cafe is a few steps down into the main building.
beware the head, the doorway is low. One does not have to go down,
it is best
outdoor cafe. Lavender Cake, that I will have. A female company puts
to them. I'll take a chocolate cake with cardamom cream instead and
outside. The chairs are wet by the recent rain, sit on a plastic
bag. Modestly, nice and friendly it is. A company arrive per bike.
In the corner has
Blomsterfén opened a shop, with flowers and flower binding.
At Lödde river is a
lookout with love poems. A road goes down to a holding place for
can rent at the cafe. A family comes paddling, experienced paddlers,
but the son
has become a little wet.
I drive to my Big stone beach north of Barsebäckshamn.

The castle, cafe.
Drive from Stävie against Löddeköpinge. One then pass
Borgeby castle. Cafes and open
states a sign at the castle. Drive in and park. The castle dates
back to the early
Middle Ages. Port Tower is the oldest from 13th century is the
oldest part. The castle has changed and
become smaller over time. Outside are lovely old stables from the
1700s. I feel
the history as I go through the gate in the medieval tower. One need
not go through
the gate, the castle is now only the tower, a main house and a lone
cafe is housed in the main building, a few steps down in the
basement. It is pleasant to sit
out in the courtyard. Sitting in the shade with coffee and a
bun. The cake offer is somewhat limited.
The artist Ernst Norlind married Hanna who owned the castle, and
they made the
castle into a cultural center around 1900. The gate tower is an
museum, it is not open every day and closed today. In the park are
tools for a playful
pentathlon. Children seem amused. From a tree hanging swings, that I
up in. In the lone corner tower is an ongoing photo exhibition of
old photos from Borgeby
history. It's probably there temporarily. In the main building is an
exhibition, currently featuring paintings, ceramics, graffiti. The
new owners, nice they to try to create life in it.
I finish the coffee and proceed to my bath in Barsebäckshamn.
