Luckily, we stumbled upon this written communication during our stroll today. Day 27.

There is a big wooden sign surrounded by trees and greenness, seemingly in the middle of the forest. The word KABEL is written using giant, black letters in all caps.

@sod Pretty cool sign. Is that the name of the forest? ☺️

@maique @sod I think kabel means the same in Swedish as in Norwegian: Cable. In that case, it might be a warning sign for a high voltage electric cable?

@maique I very well could be! Or a name tag for that tree. 😊 But, no, @odd is right. Behind the photographer (yours truly) lies lake Vättern, and the sign is a message to boats and other water vessels: "please don't disturb the big cable on the bottom of the lake."

@odd that’s even the same word in German

@TabTwo We have quite a few identical words I think. 🤔 Both Swedish and Norwegian are Germanic Languages after all. 😃
