Always a good walk around the lakes near Strausberg. We mainly talked about dogs and how we both wish to have one, which ones and how to teach them stuff. Who would have thought that this would have been my last hike without a dog …
Finally some snow! I would really love it unconditionally if I could trust car drivers to drive cautious and safely but I can’t. So I enjoy this light and silence while I am far away from roads. Here are some pictures from our garden and from a walk in the near forest.
We had a rainy hike from Spitzmühle around Fängersee and Kesselsee. Surrounded by slight fog and the stillness of nature the shiny new year said hello to us tenderly.
We spent New Years Eve on the countryside and had a cold walk around the lake near our house.
We now had rain for many days and also a lot of time in the evenings because it wasn’t possible to meet friends and family because of Covid. So we thought it is time to bring the forest inside our living room and create some mythical forest creatures, elves, leprechauns and angels.
We took a hike around Maxsee in Hoppegarten and as always during this time of the year, the sun went down early and we reached home when it was already dark. I love this special atmosphere and light in the forest when you think nature is sleeping because of the low temperatures, but you become aware that this is not true.
While the temperature is already down to 0°C some leaves still stick to their trees and the colors of autumn will soon fade to grey.
We walked around a small lake near Strausberg. And in the evening we had a nice meal with mushrooms we picked ourselves. And no, of course we didn’t eat all of those you see in the pictures.
My man got a wildlife camera for his birthday from his parents and now he is complaining that this is much more a present for me than for him 🙂 (In reality he is quite happy, that I deal with the crappy 90s interface of the thing).
The castle of Wertheim overviews the junction between Main river and Tauber river and is one of the biggest stone castles in Germany. First built in the 12th century it hosts a restaurant, a gallery and a museum today. (More info)
