A Gorgeous Walk Around Lake Farskesjon In Sweden
October 11, 2012 8:31 PM

   

When I woke up this morning it was to an absolutely gorgeous day! Windless, blue skies, a beaming sun and, though it was a bit chilly outside, the air was so beautifully fresh and crisp that the coldness just made it nicer than usual to breathe in. In other words, it was a perfect day for an outing together with my doggy Lisen. But instead of going to our favourite forest in Rodeby (Rödeby), I decided to take Lisen on a walk around a lake called Lake Farskesjon (Färskesjön in Swedish) near Jamjo (Jämjö) here in Karlskrona in Sweden - about 18 kilometers from where we live in Lyckeby. So I packed a bag with my camera, a thermos with coffee, a sandwich, a bag with treats for Lisen and off we went.

Now Lake Farskesjon is a freshwater lake which is partially located in a nature reserve.

Beautiful Lake Farskesjon. This is where we started our 4K walk around the lake.

Of course this was the first thing Lisen did when we arrived. :p

After a few minutes of intense joy over being in the lake, she spotted the hundreds of birds over there.

But Lisen was more interested in playing around in the lake than chasing after them.

I just absolutely love how clear this lake is by the way.

"Did you say something?"

It is also a very shallow lake. "Hellooooo!!"

Lisen felt a bit brave today, which of course made me nervous! (She made it fine out there though.)

Lisen also felt rather playful (as usual, hehe) - peekaboo!

"Hey, how about that lunch you packed now Alex? I am hungry."

And this is a common "eat scene" in the Lisen and Alex household.

"Hey, I want some tooo! Pleeeeeeaseeeeeeee!"

"That's more like it. Thank you." :-)

The terrain around the lake was mixed, some parts looked like this.

And Lisen always found something to do on our walk... Bad doggy! (She was rolling around in something smelly...)

But it was a really nice walk though, I love when it really feels like I am in a forest (sort of).

There were also plenty of colorful trees and rocks around.

As well as a cute little island in the lake.

Over there on that rock was where we had our lunch.

Of course all around the lake there were lots of opportunities to enjoy the view.

Hm... That boat looks a bit too wet to me...

After about two and a half hours, including many stops, we finally arrived back where we started.

And it truly was such a lovely and peaceful walk. We actually only saw two dogs and heard one human voice (shouting at the dogs, lol) on our entire walk, and they were on the opposite side of the lake as us. Which was really quite nice. Even more nice is that Lisen is so exhausted right now, hehe. Besides barking at me when she wanted her food earlier, she has just been sleeping since we got back home. Though I do think her body is a bit sore right now, so I will have to take it easy with her in the next few days. But all in all, we certainly had a gorgeous walk around Lake Farskesjon today - one I will definitely try to take more often. :-)
