      2020-10-16 G&U final round-Juist hike 6 Dune magic coast running eastward-coast running down westward - Westdorf-Ostdorf 17 kmWe set off at noon, there is almost no wind with sunny weather and an impressive view; Nordeney appears within walking distance to the east.
      The high tide releases only a narrow strip of hard-wearing sand. On the main beach near the village there are still quite a few strollers who we soon leave behind us.
      The sun always shines stronger as we approach the Kalfamer. Large flocks of herring gulls, black-headed gulls and smaller herring gulls camp on the almost endless sandy beach. In between an oystercatcher every now and then.
      We camp in the Kalfam desert before we try to follow the waterline back to the west when the water is rapidly draining.
      This results in some amusing tide crossings; repeated praise for our solid hiking boots, which also forgive the damp escapades.
      Now the sea birds are active again, following the line of the running water, looking for food. With them our little darlings, the Sanderlings, called "Keen Tied" in Low German. What an excellent name for the raging rascals who dart along the surf incredibly fast, lightning-fast, almost on the side, poking for food.
      Although it is not clear to us how the gigantic gulls meet their energy needs, they only turn the empty shells of the razor clams in their beaks occasionally.
      Back in the village we are terrified by the gigantic crowds that we didn't miss in the seemingly endless sand.A wonderful final round of our vacation, we thank the director for that!

      2020-10-15- G&U Juist-Spazandern "Dark dumplings in the village" & hike alone 5 Coast-Sandbank BILL-Billwald-Hammersee-Loog-Dune Magic 27 kmAfter a somewhat restless night, we get up before daybreak and decide to explore the darkness on the beach promenade together and buy bread rolls for breakfast from the baker Remmer on the way back.
      (Because it is closed on Wednesdays and so it stayed with the merchant on Wilhelmstrasse yesterday.)
      After breakfast we realize that we have different needs today and so soon I am running alone along the beach to the west.
      The tailwind pushes me forward, I breathe in the good aerosols deeply and really set my pace.
      The Juister sandy beach impresses with its length of 17 km, but also grows impressively in width when the water runs off. At low tide, many creeks form, corresponding to the gently sloping beach, which can sometimes only be avoided barefoot or with waterproof shoes. Now in autumn migratory birds can be observed, and today I watch the scurrying Sanderlings with great joy.Various geese pass by on the horizon over the water.
      Herring and black-backed gulls can always be found in large numbers along the flushing line.
      With no destination yet, it becomes clear to me at the level of the west beacon that I will probably run to the end of the bill, because I was not there yet.
      (Ursula already knew that I would run to Bill.)
      "On the Juister Randdünen on the Bill in the west and on the Kalfamer in the east there is a navigation mark, called a beacon in East Friesland. It is supported by an approx. 4 meter high steel frame that looks like an acute triangle from a distance. At the highest point two squares each with an edge length of 2 meters are mounted, which are put together like a cross. The surfaces carry wooden sticks, which, attached at intervals, guarantee wind permeability. With the west beacon, the square cross is on top, with the east beacon, the upper and lower bridges parallel to the horizon. Captains of the passing ships, both on the open sea and in the mudflats, see the squares against the bright sky and know whether they are in the west or east of the island. "
      In front of me is the huge sandbank, also known as the reef, the Bill and the few people I can see on it come towards me.
      That fills me with the joyful hope that maybe I will be there alone.
      "The large sand reef at the western end of the island - a unique experience. The name of the western part of Töwerland is probably borrowed from the Frisian word“ Bille ”, which means“ buttock ”. The pronounced round shape of the sand head is good evidence of this A walk around the Bill is a unique experience, because the North Sea and the Wadden Sea meet in this region. When the water runs down you experience the Billriff as a large sandy desert in the North Sea. This sight alone is worth the trip. The Bill or Billriff consists of several large ones Sandbanks. Tideways run between the sandbanks, which quickly fill with water at high tide. Find out about the high tide times and the weather before a hike. Sudden sea fog combined with rising water (high tide) can put you in great danger. With a little luck you can see seals at the Bill. " (so.)Run to the end of the world ...Well, I already got a bit of a Landsend feeling when I penetrated to the outer coastline, especially because today a strong north-east wind is blowing, which charges the atmosphere.
      I'm all alone here on the far western tip of the island.
      However, Borkum is in sight.When I go back, I pull my woolen hat low over my head, the cold wind is pulling me and I'm happy when, after a while, I trudge over the dune ridge towards Domain Bill into the interior of the island.Even today I avoid the restaurant, again a line of people is standing in front of the door. I take a short breather at the well-known seat beam, then I go to the Billdünen and finally to the Billwald.Here, too, it is largely deserted in the afternoon hour.I follow the known route (komoot.de/tour/271669011), pick a few remaining apples, at the end of the dune path I walk differently and get into the Loog.I find the village a little interesting part of island civilization and so I hurry to the fishmonger in the "Rosengang".
      Today there is plaice fillet.
      With all my love, I thank you for the crisp hiking day alone.

      2020-10-14. G&U Juist Spazandern 4 Dune Magic Beach Otto Leege Educational Trail Ostdorf Dune Magic 5.5 kmThe daily documentation is preceded by some photographic impressions from the village, some of which were taken during morning breakfast shopping.Among other things, from the bronze sculpture, created by Ted van Mehlick in front of the old warm bath. It is supposed to remind newlyweds of the day of their marriage.The same applies to the installation of the “7. Longitude ”on the spa promenade, which the AK Kunst of the Heimatverein Juist handed over to the island community in 2006."Along the beach road you will be accompanied by four bronze sculptures, which symbolize a" beach looper "slowly rising into the sea - immortalized in four shapes. Only a few days after the opening ceremony of the four sculptures, one figure was destroyed and was not closed for over a year The art group of the Juister Heimatverein then had a copy of this figure made, which you can see today on the way to the sea.In 2005, the missing figure was found again by Juister children in the dunes on the beach road.In front of the old warm bath you can see another sculpture. It is a bronze model of the "Juister bathing woman". It is reminiscent of the old Juister bathing tradition. "
      (For controversial reasons of financing? The model remained, a planned large sculpture was not set up. Unfortunately, the model is probably constantly crocheted in a banal way, just like the "Strandlooper" sculptures on Strandstrasse are kitsched up.)
      "You can find more sculptures at the Hotel Achterdiek and in the garden of Haus Sylke and Haus Insa in Wilhelmstrasse."
      Today "only" walking:
      With strong north-north-east wind we are only briefly in nature, the morning was devoted to other activities.
      It is more than uncomfortable on the beach, although the sun is often shining.
      The stormy wind whips the sand over the expanse of the beach and burns your eyes.We brace ourselves against it for a short while and then turn into the dunes to follow the Otto Leege nature trail that leads through the island's water protection area; The extraction of the extremely tasty drinking water from the underground “duckweed” is explained on panels.Some attractions for children await them in the form of a wooden wind harp and a water pump; however, both appear to be defective in need of overhaul.
      The sundial with me as a shadow hand is a little slow, but she's forgiven it.
      In addition, the path leads through a variety of different rose plants, which we get to know on this opportunity, several red thrushes harvest the many red berries.An ornate, large wooden gate and a spacious, high-level plank path complete the ensemble.
      The way home leads us through the quite new eastern village, in which one or the other islander seems to actually live.
      Thanks also for the day of rest.

      2020-10-13 G&U Juist 3 DÜNENZAUBER-Flugplatz-KALFAMER-Coast-Hafen-DÜNENZAUBER 23km(Average speed calculated too high somehow)Third day and the weather keeps getting better.
      Today we hike to Kalfamer at the east end of the island. Before that we have to follow the somewhat monotonous airport road and pass the small Juister airport.
      Here and on the following stretch of the Kalfamerweg through the charming dune landscape, it is still quite busy, which is particularly uncomfortable in C. times.
      Behind the information refuge on Kalfamerweg, the path turns at a right angle to the east at a barrier.
      For most walkers, their tour ends here and they make their way back or continue walking to the beach.
      We hike eastwards into the bird sanctuary. Only in the spring and summer months this is not allowed, so that the birds can breed in peace and raise their young.Suddenly it is completely lonely, we walk along the flooded path into the flat dune landscape and don't meet anyone.
      However, no animals either, actually I was hoping to see a spoonbill, I was not allowed to do this during the entire holiday.
      In general, the visual prey of birds is quite meager when you consider that the "Juister Bird Migration Days" are currently scheduled.
      It was more by a curious coincidence that we came across the skull bones of a fin whale stranded on Kalfam in 2012, I only find this hint in the travel guide afterwards."The Kalfamer is the eastern end of our island. As in the west, you will also find extensive sandy areas here, but they are considerably greener because new dunes are being created everywhere. The Kalfamer is the youngest area of the island.When the Petri flood divided the island in 1651, the small island of Buise was still there, which was completely destroyed in the course of the following decades. At that time the east end of Juist was around today's eastern edge of the village.The primary dune fields on the Kalfamer are an important resting and nesting area for birds. Thousands of birds stop here to breed and rest. (...)
      When arriving and departing by ship, you can often see seals on the Kalfamer.
      (We found a dead seal.)
      With a little luck you can also find amber at Kalfamer. (...)
      The name "Kalfamer" comes from the Frisian word "Kalv" (English Calf) = calf and "hammer", meaning low-lying, moist meadow. In summary: Kalv-Hammer = Kalfamer = calf meadow. "
      At the east end we picnic lonely on the edge of the dune landscape, with a view of Norderney, the mudflats and the mainland.
      (Juister vernacular: "Where is the most beautiful place on Norderney? In the far west, you can see Juist there!")
      The wide sandy landscape of the Kalfamer now reaches a growing extent as the water runs off, which can hardly be seen with the naked eye.
      The binoculars carried along are just as useful as the zoom of the small camera.
      On the beach, which is getting wider and wider, we walk back to the border of the bird sanctuary, then turn south towards the dunes, walk through completely flooded paths, and then start the same route as the way home from the barrier.Finally, we treat ourselves to a detour to the empty harbor basin and then return to our holiday home "Dune Magic".Thank you to the game master for this refreshingly eventful day.

      2020–10-12 - G&U Juist-Wanderung 2 Dünenzauber-Loog-Domäne Bill-Sandbank BILL-Küste-Dünenzauber 21kmDas Dorf durchquert, die vielen Menschen hinter uns lassend, wenden wir uns parallel zur Billstraße, die von Radlern, Pferdefuhrwerken und Spaziergängern überflutet wird, einem schmalen und feuchten Wiesenpfad zu, der am Rand der Salzwiesen entlang führt.
      Auf diese Weise laufen wir hinter dem Deich an Loog vorbei, ohne es recht zu merken. Danach beteiligen wir uns an dem betriebsamen Verkehr auf dem Weg bis zur Domäne Loog, hinter der dann ein schmaler Dünenpfad in die Hammerdünen führt.
      Ein paar Worte zu dieser absoluten Idylle Dünennatur:
      Knorrige und schief gewachsene Bäume säumen den schmalen Sandpfad, überraschenderweise finden sich sogar einige Apfelbäume dazwischen, die jetzt zur Erntezeit selbstredend gnadenlos geplündert werden.
      Und ich gebe es zu, die Früchte sind durchaus schmackhaft, der Weg musste dazu auch nicht verlassen werden, wir beherzigen die wichtigen Gesetze der Schutzzone 1.
      Etliche Bänke laden zu einer schattigen Ruhepause ein.
      Hammersee: "Der See kennzeichnet die Stelle, an der die Insel bei einer schweren Sturmflut, der Petriflut im Jahre 1651, zweigeteilt wurde. Zunächst verbanden noch einige südlich des Durchbruchs gelegene Dünen die beiden Inselteile. Doch jede weitere Sturmflut verkleinerte diese zarte Verbindung bis auch sie verloren ging. So mussten die Juister eine lange Zeit auf zwei Inseln leben. Erst 1932 konnten die getrennten Inselteile durch einen Dünendeich wieder verbunden werden. Die sogenannten Hammerdünen zählen heute zu den schönsten Dünen von Juist und es ist nur noch für den Fachmann zu erkennen, dass diese Dünen nicht von der Natur, sondern von Menschenhand geschaffen wurden. Der Hammer war nun eine große Bucht. Die Gefahr, dass eine Sturmflut die neu errichtete Dünenkette durchbrechen könnte, bestand immer.“
      Der See selbst hält sich äußerst bedeckt; das Uferdickicht ist mehrere Meter breit und meist undurchdringlich, lediglich an zwei, drei Stellen kannst du hindurchtreten, siehst aber trotzdem nicht viel.Die Aussichtsdüne bietet einen reizvollen Rundblick, ein wenig lässt sich sogar der versteckte Hammersee blicken.
      "Geboren durch Sturmfluten, von Dünen eingefasst wie ein Edelstein, funkelt auf dem Töwerland Juist ein besonderer Schatz der Natur, ein großer Süßwassersee.
      Er bildet ein Refugium für Pflanzen, Tiere und Erholung suchende Menschen."
      "Die lang gestreckte, schmale Insel ist dem ständigen Wind ausgesetzt, der einen umfangreichen Baumbestand, wie z. B. auf Norderney oder Borkum, nicht zulässt. In den zwanziger Jahren des vorletzten Jahrhunderts begann der Biologe Dr. Otto Leege westlich des Hammersees mit der Anpflanzung besonders windharter Pflanzen und schuf damit das Naturschutzgebiet, das Sie auf den zugelassenen Wegen durchwandern können.
      Als seltene Bäume können Sie im Wäldchen Schwarzerlen und Karpatenbirken entdecken. Dieser kleine Wald ist etwas Besonderes, denn er wirkt durch den knorrigen Wuchs der Bäume verzaubert und geisterhaft. Insbesondere bei Nebel fühlen Sie sich in das Reich der Sagen und Mythen versetzt. Der starke Wind ist der Grund für diesen einzigartigen Baumwuchs. Bei vielen Bäumen können Sie grüne und graue Schuppen finden. Dies sind Flechten, die sich an der Baumrinde angesiedelt haben. Genau diese Flechten gelten als Indikatorpflanzen für absolut reine Luft. Sie finden somit in unserem Wäldchen einen Beweis für saubere, schadstoffarme Luft auf Juist.
      Bei einer Wanderung durch das Wäldchen können Sie häufig Rehe beobachten.
      (Wir hatten das Glück, dass drei Rehe direkt vor unserem Balkon in der Morgendämmerung vorbeiliefen.)
      Diese leben auf unserer Insel seit ca. 50 Jahren.“
      Uns hat dieses Wäldchen durchaus in seinen Bann geschlagen, erweckt es wirklich durch seine dichte Bewaldung und höhlenartigen Gassenpfade einen verwunschenen Eindruck.
      Sind wir es doch meist gewohnt, zwischen hohen Buchen und Eichen zu wandern, so finden wir hier Bonsai-Eichen (übertrieben ausgedrückt); lediglich die Windflüchter, die vom Sturm und Dauerwind schräg gekämmten Kiefern sind von etwas höherem Wuchs.
      Domäne Bill: Alles schwärmt von Erbsensuppe und Rosinenstuten; aber in Corona-Zeiten in endlosen Schlangen anzustehen, weil alle Besucher der Insel unbedingt die Domäne BILL besuchen wollen (Auch wir hatten Rosinenstuten mit Leberwurst geplant.), ist dann doch nicht jedermanns Ding. Bei schlechterem Wetter mag es möglich sein, wir ziehen heute weiter.Hinter dem Lokal pausieren wir auf einem windgeschützten Holzbalken, bevor wir uns an den Rand des Billriffs bewegen.
      Der Wanderweg ist weitläufig überspült und steht tief unter Wasser.
      "Das große Sandriff am Westende der Insel - ein einzigartiges Erlebnis. Der Name des Westteils vom Töwerland ist vermutlich dem friesischen Wort “Bille” entliehen, was soviel wie “Gesäßbacke” bedeutet. Die ausgeprägte runde Form des Sandkopfes ist hierfür ein guter Beweis. Ein Spaziergang um die Bill ist ein einzigartiges Erlebnis, denn in dieser Region treffen sich Nordsee und Wattenmeer. Bei ablaufendem Wasser erleben Sie das Billriff als große Sandwüste in der Nordsee. Allein dieser Anblick ist die Reise wert. Die Bill oder das Billriff besteht aus mehreren großen Sandbänken. Zwischen den Sandbänken verlaufen Priele, die sich bei Flut schnell mit Wasser füllen. Informieren Sie sich vor einer Wanderung unbedingt über die Hochwasserzeiten und das Wetter. Bei plötzlich aufkommendem Seenebel in Kombination mit auflaufendem Wasser (Flut) können Sie in große Gefahr geraten. An der Bill können Sie mit etwas Glück Seehunde beobachten."
      Wir sparen uns heute den weiteren Strandmarsch bis in den äußersten Westzipfel der Bill, begnügen uns mit ihrem östlichen Rand und begeben uns auf den Weg zurück nach Osten, immer der Flutlinie folgend am Meer entlang.
      Ursula läuft barfuß, ich mag meine geliebten Wandertreter nicht verlassen.
      Unterwegs beobachten wir die Ausfahrt einiger Krabbenkutter, staunen über zwei mutige Meerfrauen, die dem frischen Wind trotzend, schwimmen gehen; schauen den Umtrieben zweier Brandungsangler zu, die meiner (gemeinen) Meinung nach von der Kurverwaltung als Attraktion und Aufforderung eingesetzt sind und landen schließlich wieder im Dorf ...
      ... und in unserer herrlichen Ferienwohnung.
      Der Regie sei gedankt für diesen prallen Tag.

      Our first hike on Juist.
      (Note on October 11th: Not tracked, so it is extremely inconvenient to document the hike.)
      First the sun shines as promised and after good old experience we hike against the strong west wind, even if this means that we meet the large number of sandpipers who now populate the coastline after the small storms in the morning.Ursula is soon walking barefoot through the surf in front, I trust my hiking boots, which are quite tight and keep my feet dry while I walk through the flushing area.Finally at the North Sea again, not been here for a long time.
      And even if the island is crammed with holiday guests, it is no different here than in the local forest; As soon as we have left the main beach near the town behind us, the sand is empty.
      When the sun is shining, darkest clouds loom over the sea, but as I have often done before, I am of the opinion that the weather does not hit us, but that we can avoid it at a brisk step to the west.
      Unfortunately my wife is right, as she was at the Baltic Sea three years ago, but luckily this time it is not a hurricane that blows trees, but just heavy rain, which will soon be joined by hail.
      We turn around and start our way home to the east earlier than expected. The hail hits the back and it is unbelievable how quickly our trousers are soaked.
      What use is the tightest shoe if the soup runs in from above?
      But the storm clears the beach of crowds and the western tip of Norderney appears in the haze in front of us.Large flocks of migrating geese cross the dramatic sky over the troubled sea.
      The mood rises again, but the wet pants and water-soaked shoes do not make us think about walking, we look forward to our beautiful holiday apartment.
      It's enough for the first day, the unfamiliar climate gives you a physical feeling that is reminiscent of a mammoth hike.Grateful for this first day of Juister vacation ending for today.

      2020-10-04 G&U Sunday hike
      BAD-Weitmarer Holz-Radom-Linden
      17km / 200hm
      Sunday morning it will rain, but the rain radar promises dry weather from 1 p.m.
      We are lucky, when we stomp off at 1:15 p.m., the sun even comes out.
      Special feature today: For me the planned tour of 16 km is one of the shorter routes, for Ursula a long hike.
      Plus the new shoes: the same model as mine, in the women's version.
      And they sit perfectly, at the end just a small pressure point on the instep, they still have to be softened.
      The hope that after the long rainy morning only a few people will be out at noon turns out to be deceptive, at least at the beginning, when arriving at the Ruhr.
      Keeping your distance is not easy for everyone, but the C. numbers in Essen are increasing enormously, so caution is advised.
      The Springorum route is pretty unpopulated, at least for a Sunday afternoon.
      The almost five-kilometer-long asphalt strip allows us to cope with most of the vertical meters of the tour in a moderate way and after an hour we pause in the quiet Weitmarer Parkfriedhof.
      Today we don't enjoy deer, but quite a few squirrels and a green woodpecker cavort in the devout calm.
      In Weitmarer Holz, especially near the game reserve, it gets really full; we quickly overtake the strollers and the prams.The RADOM shines in the sun in front of a blue-white sky, but dark masses of clouds are moving over the Langenberg transmitter masts.West of the RADOM is a narrow piece of forest between Baaker Straße and Obernbaakstraße, I've never been here and once again it shows what surprises a tour in the area that is worked out on the home computer has in store.The path is tiny, sloping and narrow, temporarily disappearing under the freshly fallen leaves. Above us the trees creak in the freshening wind; a sign indicating "mortal danger" warns against entering the site (where does it begin?) of the former "Dickebaeckerbank" coal mine.When we arrive in the valley of the narrow Siefens, we are greeted by the gloomy-looking "water drainage Peaceful Neighbor", which cannot really cheer up even with the many lifebuoys.But there must have been a number of poets among the coal miners of bygone days, perhaps the flowery names were supposed to conceal the hard work.We leave the ominous terrain on a muddy path, briefly reach the asphalt of the "Donnerbecke" and then disappear again in a small wooded area west of Rauendahl.For the second time today we stumble upon a couple of poorly trained dogs as we step out into the fields in the sunlight.After crossing Wuppertaler Straße, the voice in our rucksack leads us along a path that meanders for about a kilometer, following the fields, past the settlements near Lewacker Straße in Linden.It's amazing how much nature shows itself to us in this extremely densely populated area on the narrowest strips.The small path becomes wider and finally releases us down the valley in the well-known Aarwäldchen, from where we take the mining path back to the pontoon bridge over the Ruhr.The weather played along, a lot of sunshine was even there.A successful hiking tour, on which I can also book some new things in my local history memory.We are grateful for the many impressions that the afternoon gave us.

      We have finally found the time to run together on a sunny Sunday.The two of us, never that far.
      A good two hours, then that's good.
      Today a bit of local history again.
      In addition to everything that is well known, I showed the "B" and "O", the path that leads so perfectly along the Linden settlement areas through the forest.
      The visit of the Horkenstein between Dahlhausen and Linden and the associated remarkable view of the Ruhr and the Dahlhauser Wehr was completely new for both of us.
      There used to be a restaurant here, as a board tells us.
      At the weir there was a lot of hype, on the Ruhr it is almost as full on nice days as on the Ruhr.And again: It is quiet in the forest and even on the above-mentioned forest edge path the number of people is manageable.

      2020.07.12-PUG family hike with sluepad (premiere): A good 12km from Villa Kunterbunt to BAD:
      It is a small rarity when the family embarks on a hike together. (Komoot incorrectly doesn't show P. as a participant.)
      Today the weather is terrific, a white-blue sky welcomes us and accompanies us all the time.
      We already know most of the route from earlier "K" hikes, and today the 180 also takes us to Villa Kunterbunt, from which we start and run back to BAD.
      The new "sluepad" has its premiere today. So far, when I was on my own, I always walked analog, now I was also caught digitally and we had the pad that recorded the route with us. Also as a first rehearsal for the upcoming G&K summer hike, which I want to document with it.
      Nevertheless, we get lost once after the motorway underpass, but only briefly. This path was previously unknown to us, but it is just as narrow and exciting behind the motorway as other paths on the Asbach valley.
      Other highlights are the photogenic goats in the Asbach valley and the break bench on the Sollwiesenbusch.
      Shortly thereafter, the Brahma chickens salute us and we climb further up into the blue and white to the Priembergweg. The path above the Eickelbach valley again attracts with its numerous benches, which we do not need today.
      Another sight awaits us in the border valley between Kupferdreh and Byfang.
      Most of the wind break is a sad and dangerous design element for the forest, but here in the small valley on the border between Byfang and Kupferdreh the storms have created a picturesque insight into the Siefen.
      The tall silver beech trees shine brightly over the lush green of the renewable generation and the pioneer plants. Recently, however, another giant was caught and overthrown, and there are fears that the remaining beeches will fall victim to the sunburn.
      Exceptionally, we will leave the banks at the water tower on the left today, because the sun is burning hard.
      The view of the castle is different today than last year, the castle ruins appear behind fast-growing corn.
      A nice tour, which comes up with quite a few strenuous meters in altitude over a fairly short distance.

      Whit Monday house round:
      Because the sun is shining on the land again today and mankind will pour out in droves over the landscape, we both set off today at a quarter to five.
      We should really do it more often: It is fantastic to walk along the river in the early morning. Today the sun also rose brightly in the morning mist, which created very picturesque pictures.
      We also saw two foxes and a deer, which will be very unlikely at a later hour.
      The blooming poppies shine in incomparable red in the slanting sun.
      (Unfortunately, I entered the round in the opposite direction, because we were so smart to first walk along the Ruhr because it will be very busy again today.)
