Sunday and Monday

Sunday and Monday

Just had two physical rest days camping on a hot beach on Puerto Arista. Not much to report besides a lot of office work, repairs and recovery. I start over again tomorrow, to reach Puerto Chiapas by Saturday. Thanks to Rebeca looking after me Saturday and Sunday!

Luciapaddling 2021

Luciapaddling 2021

Andra året i rad med Luciapaddling, då är det väl en tradition 😉 Toni tyckte även i år att det skulle Luciapaddlas, det var ju trevligt förra året så perfekt initiativ. Elva paddlare samlades vid ÄSSS och pyntade kajakerna med ljusslingor och pynt. Tobbe var mest ambitiös med massor av lampor och dessutom en hängande … Läs mer…

Paddla för Musikhjälpen

Paddla för Musikhjälpen

Paddla för Musikhjälpen har paddlat och samlat in pengar till Musikhjälpen i flera år. Bakom Paddla för Musikhjälpen ligger Pelle Stafshede och Melker Kajak samt Paddla i Pampas. De har tidigare vinterpaddlat långt för att komma till aktuell stad och samlat in bra med pengar. Kul och koolt initiativ som förutom insamlade pengar gett paddling … Läs mer…

Fargetur fra Taen

Fargetur fra Taen

Vi har sett sola for siste gang på en stund, og det er blitt fargetid. Nå har det vært en periode med frost og jeg har derfor ikke padlet så mye. Men nå meldte det litt mildere, heldigvis. Ut mot storhavet er det to fordeler – det er som oftest mildest, der er det også […]

Anlägga Äng

Anlägga Äng

De flesta som sett en äng blir sugna på att ha en egen. En äng innehåller massor av liv och är bra för både växter, natur, djur, biologisk mångfald och klimatet. Dessutom mycket roligare med äng en tråkig gräsmatta som bara är en grön öken. Se nedanstående film som är ett samarbete mellan Rikare Trädgård, … Läs mer…

Jack 14 – Benjamin Holm Johansen

“Hei Björn! Da er kajakken endelig ferdig,min første kajakk jeg har bygget,og dette ga mer smak! Dette blir nok ikke den siste
Vil takke for flotte tegninger, jeg hadde planer om å bygge i Gran men materialene jeg kom over var fulle av kvist og fikk ikke en stripe uten at det knakk av.. så jeg bygde den i ask og cambara materialer som har ligget på jobben min i 40år. (Jobber som trappesnekker)
Kajakken ble selvfølgelig noe tyngre men den var god og stødig å padle, klarer fint å løfte den alene på bil taket,ligger godt på vannet og i sjø
Legger med noen bilder
Mvh Benjamin Holm Johansen”

November 2021

November drog även den förbi. För vår del var det (som vanligt) med nöd och näppe vi fick till paddling och utenatt 😉 Bad blev det i alla fall varje dag så det får godkänt 🙂 I övrigt mycket skogsdräll hemomkring och så besök på Höstljus på Sofiero. Go månad som avslutades med snö 🙂

Not All Debris is Equal

Not All Debris is Equal

The Puget Creek Natural Area in Tacoma’s north end is a lot of different things. It’s been a public space since early Tacoma businessman and booster Allen Mason donated it to the city in 1888, “to the uses of the public forever,” but it’s had its good and bad years since then. Stretching from the …

Tunnelhaveri

Tunnelhaveri

Äntligen vinter i skåne. Nu har vi haft vinter i en vecka. Ovanligt med vinter i skåne och ovanligt tidig vinter. Hade fantastiskt fina dagar torsdag och fredag i förra veckan med finväder och allt helt vitt. Fluffigt vitt och ett par minus, suveränt. I lördags morse vaknade vi dock till 15cm blötsnö och plusgrader … Läs mer…
