Mausundvære

We spent the afternoon on Mausundvære, an island assessible via a 45 minute ferry ride. We rode our bikes onto the ferry -- the kids were happy to ride their bikes around on the nearly empty car deck while the grown-ups watched dozens of small flat islands float by.

It had rained the night before, but now the sun was shining. We explored the island, up and down hills, trying each road until it ended in some kind of curious farm house. The houses here appear weather-weary, and with the many stones and cool salty air it gives me a feeling that life here demands hard work.

All was well until we lost the boys, then we had to split up to search. We lunched on fruit and boller, then caught the afternoon ferry back.

At first glance, this island's name looks like "Man's Underwear."
