At first, I couldn’t understand the concept of a sea lock. I thought it’s just gates and that the purpose is to controll the boat traffic. 😛 Good thing someone explained it to me and thanks to Wikipedia I now know that a lock helps boats to pass and navigate a canal or a river because the sea/water levels are different in some areas and that causes difference in currents when it’s a high tide or a low tide.
Last week, I was here with my special ones and it’s our first time to be here. At first it was a riddle on how we gonna get to the canal because Google Maps says that we can go on the sea. 😀 Well, it’s accessible by boat or you can swim but we didn’t have a boat and swimming was not an option and not possible because it’s cold and I can’t swim. Good thing we met a pair who have been by the canal. They told us that we have to go through on someone’s private garden/property to access the canal. Yes, I felt that it wasn’t right but the owners can’t stop us because the rules and regulations say that the canal and the lock is a government property.
Nevertheless the feeling of guilt (because of tresspassing on a private garden), the trip to Lindåsslusene (Lindås Lock) is worth it. There are other beautiful nearby spots as well.
