Mum, Pavlov and I have been to Alsace for some days and we saw a lot of timbered houses and bought and ate many different cheeses. On our first day we took a trip to some smaller but very picturesque towns. The weather was very variable and we had to pull out our raincoats several times.
We had a nice day in the forest and at the lakes around Pritzwalker Mühle. Pavlov had a lot of fun in the forests and I’m very happy that he doesn’t show any ambition to hunt (except of pigeons in the city). At the end we bought some homemade honey next to Haus Tornow am See and a man told us the moved history of the building (Orphanage, war hospital, home for difficult adolescents).
Take a seat and have some coffee and cake on the lake side. It’s a really wonderful place.
Two of us not in the best of health, we chose a small walk near our house. This day with two dogs.
We will come back to visit the huge exposition of GDR motorcycles collected by one of the inhabitants of the abandoned barracks.
We started this afternoon in the rain and we just wanted to have a quick walk before returning to the city. But soon the sun came out and we had some magic light in the forest. So there is something to remember in it: The most ordinary walk can unexpectedly turn into something shiny and bright with a little help from the sun. Pavlov loves running between the trees and mostly obeys very well when we call him back.
We had a nice Sunday afternoon walk near Lichtenow with friends. Pavlov didn’t want to take the backpack option this time and we observed a big group of deer far from us.
We had a slow and grey Sunday and the sun hid behind clouds again. We all hope spring will manifest soon with great lights and warm sunrays. Pavlov saw a duck for the first time and as he is a “Duck Tolling Retriever” I imagined noticing some interest. But he is also interested in crows in the park 🙂
A walk with an old and dear friend trough the marvelous village of Hirschhorn over Neckar river. It’s so good to see people grow and change and that every change has the chance to be a powerful boost of live. At the same time walking through historic environments and knowing her since our distant school days reminds me that there is a solid foundation that can last over centuries.
I started taking walks at night sometimes on my own, sometimes with a friend to move my tired home-office legs. You see some dog walkers around but even Unter den Linden and Brandenburger Tor is empty. Nobody is out there and it’s like in a movie where you wake up and suddenly you become aware that you are the only person around.
We had a cold Sunday Hike around Dammwiesen between Rehfelde and Stienitzsee. On our way we saw donkeys and cows grazing on this huge natural reserve area. Really worth a hike!
Some weeks before we made the same hike, but as the trees still had most of their leaves and the sun was hining the atmosphere was completely different.
