Today drove via Isenstedt and Frotheim to the landscape lake in Lavelsloh. It's a very small lake that has been man-made, but well worth a visit. You can walk around it, or go cycling. There are plenty of benches to rest and enjoy the view of the lake.Then I took a look at the Lavelsloh windmill from a distance. To get there from my point of view, I would have had to take main roads. A small footpath has been supposed to be built for years, a couple tell me that I asked about the way, but nothing has happened so far. Since I took the photo of the Lavelsloh windmill with the camera, it appears as the first picture under photos.When I wanted to orient myself a few meters further to the barbecue hut, it suddenly started to rain, hail and snow.A perfect opportunity to stand under and wait for the brief weather change.Then it went on to the wedding mill in Ton Heath and the ostrich farm. Somehow the dark weather haunted me today, but it should stay nice.So I stepped on the gas and continued with sport mode instead of eco mode. It only hailed again shortly before Isenstedt, but it wasn't too bad and I made it to come home. In the meantime I had got cold feet and had to warm up first.
It's a nice tour. The weather threatened me with hail too. When my bike was stowed away and I was sitting in the car, it started. You have to be lucky.
True, or find a good shelter.
Nice tour, Ilona 👍 ... and wonderfully commented 👌 ... the dark clouds ☁️ came from the north today ... on the way, like you, occasionally a cloud opened and brought some hail 🥲 ... that was negligible ... when it really started, I was lucky to find a sheltered school bus stop. I then combined that with the lunch break 😋 ...
Very nice tour, especially the photos.
