Bodil Nymark, collector of herb for snaps
Bodil is a migrant and originally from the island of Samsø. She moved to Hvalpsund because of its location and in order to be close to the Limfjord, where she and her husband have often sailed. Bodil is well-traveled in the landscape around the fjord, where she collects herbs in order to cultivate her passion for flavored snaps, the alcoholic beverage popular in Scandinavia. You can read more about this at bodil-nymark-kryddersnapse.dk, where you can also book a tasting and talk about snaps.
- If I can only name three of my favorite places, one of them must absolutely be Hvalpsund, which is a wonderful place along the water with a swimming beach, a boat harbor, and a wonderful harbor atmosphere.If you walk around the harbor you will immediately sense the atmosphere. If you want to take a longer walk, go along the beach all the way around the point or take the marked blue walking path that will take you past Hessel Manor.
- Hessel by itself is quite clearly worth a visit, both when there are special events and when there aren’t any. It is like stepping into a pocket of time from the 19th Walk through the rooms in the main house, sit down in the barn and enjoy the view over the fjord.
- And then I think that one should not ignore Trend. It is a fantastically child-friendly beach that at the same time is good for surfing. I go there myself and live at the camping place in Trend all summer.
