The island of Magerøya has many places that the locals refer to as “perler”, or pearls: Beautiful, unique locations that are a pleasure to explore. One of these treasured spots is called Sarnes, just a ten-minute drive from our home.
This past weekend I stumbled upon a fascinating discovery. But before I share it, I must give a bit of background information. The Sarnes coastline is surrounded by tall grasses. Hiking with my kids can be a bit of a challenge, because the long grasses makes it difficult to see where one is stepping, and without warning the next step is two feet lower than the previous.
The melting winter snow has revealed why it’s tough to pass through the tufts.
