Föhr - a little German island situated near the Danish border

I spent four weeks in a clinic in Utersum, a very small village in the eastern part of Föhr. It was great, the clinic was situated on the beach. It was a wonderful treat after the chemo treatment. No cooking, no cleaning, no tidying up.
Instead I had different therapies every day, physical exercises, swimming, health tips... I took long walks on the beach, explored the island and even managed to paint in the evening....

I've included a few images. The houses are covered in straw roofs.

A typical "Strandkorb", a seating place that protects you from the wind and the sun...
And wonderful sunsets!

The skies were wide, there was breathing space and lots of space for the soul !

And some roses I painted in the evening and made into a card for cancer survivors :


  1. What an idyllic place and great photos, Barbara!

    And it's good to see you managed some painting too, with wonderful results!

  2. Thank you Judy, Föhr is a beautiful island, I plan on going there again next year!
