I was almost tempted to give in to the rain and the rising wind on the sofa ... but what if the weather app promises improvement in the afternoon? So first bake coconut cookies ... but then! Luckily the rain cape stayed in the backpack. At Gut Borghorst - known as an aristocratic residence since the 15th century - I tried to become a circus performer as a child and learned to vault. Everything is still determined by the cavalry there, but you can also celebrate great weddings here. After a while I stalked Gut Augustenhof from behind ... there, in the next 3 weeks, many people will cut their own Christmas trees. It was still very quiet today. On the way back, it was already dark, but you walk along the Kronsbek or Aschau, which has been newly renatured with EU funding and which flows into the Eckernförde Bay near Aschau. I was amazed at the apparently shallower water and "rapids" in the course and found information on the Internet that the Kronsbek is said to be home to a considerable population of sea trout. I'll have another look at it in daylight in the spring.

Finally a good weather forecast for St. Peter-Ording and we have made a holiday trip out of it. On site it turned out that, thanks to the full moon and the associated spring tide, the intended hiking route had to be adjusted twice. But what does it matter when the sun is shining.

A canoe tour on the Aller was originally planned, but since we had seen 2 youngsters capsized the night before, I couldn't get my better half to do it. So it went on to a particularly wonderful hike in the course of the Aller. The two sunrise pictures were taken early in the morning at the starting point of the hike.

What do you do in a region you don't even know? .... a bike tour to explore the area .... the weather was so-so, but the tour developed at its best ... through deserted, but game-rich meadows, past blueberry plantations with explanations from a retired professional hunter, along renaturation conversions along the Aller and finally through the grounds of the very remarkable Wienhausen Monastery ... and through a wrong junction with great sunset impressions. I didn't take some of the pictures of the monastery on this tour, but they show how worth seeing it is there. Back at the campsite, we found out the next morning that my bike had a flat tire ... luckily not somewhere on the tour! 🍀

Dream Fulfillment🤩: Hiking on the Heidschnuckenweg🐐 in the Lüneburg Heath in bright sunshine☀️ and full of heather bloom🌸 ... I unsuspecting >>> It's amazing how many heather areas there are in various variations ... And benches around the most beautiful places to enjoy the view and enjoy the scent ... 👍 .... thanks to the free buses of the Heide-Shuttle (which incidentally always take bicycles with them) it is possible in many places to choose an outward journey by bus and hike back. Our plan to reward us with a piece of cake at the Brunausee after the hike did not work out, but a spaghetti ice cream on the return trip was not to be despised either.
