Being lost!

Hello everyone! 
It is almost a week now since  I posted the sceneries on top of the mountain where me and my husband hiked.

Anyway, this is the continuation of our hike. We have to come down again from the mountain, isn't it? 

This was my last picture from the top. My shadow!

But, it didn't occurred to us that we were not going to find the same track that we used to trekk to the mountain top. But we really did get lost and it was a terrible feeling when we didn't even had signal on our phone, no compass and no matches in our backpacks.

We walked and walked which we believed was the way  down from the mountain top, but it was not. My husband then climbed to the highest point nearby to see if he could find a sign of where we were. Then he saw a cottage nearby and he said that we could go in that direction. But when we reached that cottage, it turned out that it was an only an old shed that was already falling apart. Then my husband told me that we just go the direction of the sea, which he saw when he climbed at the highest point where we were, because our starting point was near the sea. 
Then I prayed to God to show us the way. After half an hour, walking in the forest and marsh, we saw a path that seems to be used and that gave us a hope to find the main road. It was not the same path that we used to trekk to the mountain, but we know that it can lead us to the road later, so we just followed the path.

Then I saw this mushroom along the path and because I felt safe already, I took my camera and snap a shot.


After a while we saw this shed, rested, ate bread and drink coffee. Leftovers from our packed lunch.

It was beautiful around us


Sun shone and clouds reflected on the water


Afterwards, we continued walking and the path got better and better

A nice wood bench to sit along the way

As I look back, I could see the mountain where we came from. Circa 300 meter above sea level. 

Guess how happy I was when I saw the sea in front of us

But, it was not here we parked our car. But my husband knows already where we were. We just needed to walk more for ca. 2 kilometers to our car.

Although we were already so exhausted, we found the strength to move forward. We would be home soon anyway!

Nice weather to walk along the road


The scenery was fantastic too


Good to have my camera to capture the moments


The troll showed us the way


Then at last, we reached home and I made chicken soup for us. Well, there is a saying: "There is no place like home."

A mountain hike that could be done in three hours, but we used two hours more to find the right way.

Ending this post with a prayer
    Lord, I want You to break me and make me what You want to be. I want to be a person that walks before You with a broken spirit and a contrite heart. May You give me the grace and strength to receive Your discipline and help me make changes You want to make. Amen

  5. Hi Joy! That first photo looks like there's a smile in snow on your shadow!
    What a situation! I'm so glad that you found your way back, but it was quite a trip, wasn't it? You got to see some lovely things that you wouldn't have it you took the same way back, so that was a good thing. But oh my, how tired you must have been!!

    You deserved a good dinner :)

  8. Glad you eventually found your way back to the car. It is SCARY when one is lost when there's nobody else around and no cellphone service... Glad you prayed and found calm that way, knowing that God would help you get down that mountain... AND--you made it!!!! Gorgeous photos though ---so you did have a wonderful hike.

    Hugs,
    Betsy
