Freshwater pond on Christiansoe

In the old days the only water on the islands came from rain. It was carefully kept and protected in a number of ponds around the island. Boats had to bring all other water to the island from more than an hour away

Today additional water comes by ship and from deep drilled wells, beyyond many meters of granite. And the ponds have become tiny paradises for frogs and other species
