Anklam/ Germany...Karnin Lifting-Bridge WW2

Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karnin_Lift_Bridge

Map https://bit.ly/3dh6dS7


The railway bridge was lifted when ships entered and left the Peenehaff.
Lowered, it was part of the main line that brought tourists to the Baltic Seaside Resorts.

More importantly, it was crucial to the Nazi's Peenemuende Rocket Development
site at the north of Usedom Island, bringing in supplies, materials and personel day and night

...until the local Wild Hog shows up






Time for a stroll through the marshes nearby

Ruegen Island...Best of the West

Map https://bit.ly/2WuZqxk



Another lazy afternoon .
This time along the western parts , the ferry at Wittow and up towards Putgarten @ Cape Arkona





Somewhere in the haze...Copenhagen/ Denmark





Sweet little singlelaners connecting all the hamlets everywhere, the backblocks are FULL of 'em!





Near Suhrendorf/ Haide.... surf's up!









It's somehow hard to comprehend that most of that "Haff" is only a foot or 2 deep...when those guys splat themselves they just stand in mid-calf deep water, step onto their boards and are off again.










Thanks for the great show, mate...that was awesome!

It's impossible to try and wrap the entire topic of the "Trabbi" car with all its technical/historical/political/ social/ industrial etc connotations into a single sentence or 2...to then get the joke and sarcasm of that rear-window sticker.

It's just one of those local "in-jokes" that don't mean anything to anybody else.








Time to keep moving north...





The German "Avenue-Road", Germany's longest scenic route...a quick Wiki-quote:

Quote:
The German Avenue Road (German: Deutsche Alleenstraße) is a tree-lined holiday route that runs the length of Germany from Rügen on the Baltic Sea to Lake Constance on its border with Switzerland.[1][2] About 2,900 kilometres (1,800 mi) long, it is Germany's longest scenic route. The project is supported by the "German Avenue Route Association" (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Deutsche Alleenstraße), whose members are the German Automobile Club ("ADAC"), the German Tourism Association, the German Forest Conservation Society, and other institutions.[3] The forestry scientist, Hans Joachim Fröhlich, was its major proponent.

The aim of the Association is to preserve, protect, and maintain avenues in Germany and to restore old avenues after they were destroyed in many places in recent years by road development and safety projects.[4] The Association says the Route connects "the East with West and North to South [and] is a symbol of German unity and common effort of the people of the old and new federal states for the protection of nature."[5]

Cobblestones still serve as pavement on many avenues in the former East German areas. An spokesman for the Route says the average speed is about 70 km/h (43 mph).[6]

The first segment of the German Avenue Road between Rügen Island in the Baltic Sea and Reinsberg was inaugurated on 3 May 1993, progressively completed over the next several years, and completed on 25 May 2000 with the segment from Ettlingen, near Karlsruhe, to the island of Reichenau in Lake Constance on the German-Swiss border.[7]

Waiting for the ferryman at Wittow





Fishing shacks along the way...the local version of KFC et all.
Boats out the side, smoking cabinet in the back... pots and pans, charcoal grill and dinged-up stainless out the front.
No deep-fryer, no Eftpos or mountains of paper and cardboard anywhere.
Where a quick-bite doesn't mean "shoving it down the throat" but involves sitting down and becoming part of the bigger place for a little while.
Or a long while.


Time-out, man...











Schreiber's Fisch near Dranske






Just out of the smoker...cooling down.
