The story behind the image
As you may know, I was born and raised in Kiel, Germany. Well, in Altenholz close to Kiel, to be precise. From our appartment it was just a 15-minute bike ride to the beach in Falckenstein, and maybe 20 minutes to Schilksee.
A bit further up the coastline there is Strande with its prominent Bülk lighthouse, marking the western entrance to the Kieler Förde. In September 2002 I visited my mother who had just moved back to Kiel, and on a sunny afternoon we drove to Strande and Bülk for a walk along the sea.
That’s one of the things I really have been missing ever since I moved to Bavaria in 1995: Just hop into the car, drive 20 minutes and enjoy the perfectly even horizon, the clean air, the salty smell of the sea, the cold (or hot) sand of the beach.
Well, well, at least I have this nice image of Bülk, and I will always remember this walk with my mother.
