We had wonderful beach walkings and the boys could fly their kite. At this part of the island you can see in the background two other islands: Amrum and Sylt. At low tide you can go by foot to Amrum with an experienced guide, but there is always a waterlane between Föhr and Sylt. Föhr is is a relatively silent island, especially at this time of the year.
The ferry from Föhr to mainland, in the background the islets called Halligen.
Bladder wrack is a seaweed and is served as a vegetable in Japan. In Europe’s food industry it is used as additive and flavouring. It is a natural source of iodine, discovered in 1811, and was used extensively to treat goitre, a swelling of the thyroid gland related to iodine deficiency. Because of its alginic acid content the seaweed is also used in weight-loss products.
