Zollenspieker With the World’s Smallest Diner

Thank you for visiting! 🙂

This is part of Cee’s black and white photo challenge letter y or z.

Very few words in my language start with a y, but it`s very rich in z-words. Zeitgeist and Zeppelin come to mind, but unfortunately I don’t seem to have taken any pictures of them lately. Nor can I present you with a portrait of my Zahnarzt (dentist), which is probably not a very popular word, anyway.

What about Zollenspieker though? It’s the name of a wildlife reserve. Near the ferry that will take you to the other side of the River Elbe you might want to have a four course meal with up to three friends and enjoy the view. In the olden days the wooden hut was used as a flood marker, Pegel, so the official name of the world`s smallest restaurant is Zollenspieker Pegelhäuschen. Isn’t it cute?

I just read that Zollenspieker used to be called Yselinge – yippee! This means I killed two birds with one stone! (What a terrible idiom – why should I want to kill even one?)

Thank you, Cee and thank you all for visiting.

And now for something completely different… The waves of the Thames and a wild cormorant waiting for its wings to dry, watched by me while walking past. This waterfowl would welcome a warm wind!

V as in Vík, Iceland

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White photo challenge – letter V.

As usual I took a colour photograph, but it turned out black and white all by itself. The sky was grey, the sand black as can be expected on a lava beach. And why Vík? Because that’s the name of the place meaning bay (what else).
