Borkum liebe ich, nicht Sylt!
Always wanted to circumnavigate the Eternal Sea. I have now succeeded in doing that. Some attempts with farm roads have turned into bumpy roads, gravel, sand roads and, at the end, to wergrown trails
The “Düwelsmeer-Mittelwicke” passage near Berumerfehn is surprisingly good.

Cycling is clear, but chilling out? Explained in a moment.
From Borssum to the dike, along the Ems with a slight tail wind to the sea lock. Then I wanted to take the inner lock crossing, but hadn't paid attention to the. Lock gate inside was open which was my luck. So first take a few photos and then to the side of the lock. There are several benches from which you have the best view (watching other people at work can also be exhausting). Such a complete smuggling is quite decelerating, maybe even lowering blood pressure for the viewer.
But now my time was running out; So a little detour into the city, ice cream on hand and back to Borssum 😀

Today I drove through Heisfelde and saw construction fences. Beyond that I knew the garden and the hall of the former restaurant Barkei.
Childhood memories spread under the remaining hair on my head. Wasn't a fair or shooting festival celebrated here once (several times?) Around 1960?
Long before this time, when large groups of people were traveling by foot, a Sunday walk to Barkei‘s inn and beer garden was not uncommon. Unfortunately, I don't remember where I read it, so no source is given. Maybe someone of you knows more details, I would be very happy to receive information 😀
