When the weather is fantastic, first walk through the interior of the country - as there is no other way in Dithmarschen, unfortunately only on paved paths. The sky was wide, the sun was warm, there was almost no wind and the cabbage harvest was in full swing. And what was also new to me is that there are pheasants on every corner and in every field.
The way back on the dike was wonderful, on one side the Speichererkoog, on the other the Meldorfer Bay with a very smooth North Sea - and two courageous bathers. Besides many other birds, there are currently many barnacle geese and starlings there. As a grand finale, I treated myself to the sunset from the dike. But afterwards I had to hurry to get back to the starting point in the last twilight.

The Eichhof cemetery is always beautiful, but in autumn, when the leaves begin to color and the sun casts a great play of light and shadows on the ground, it is simply unique. As a large park cemetery, which was planned and laid out by garden architects and gardeners over 100 years ago, it is always worth a walk.

I followed the Baltic Sea long-distance cycle route a lot, which leads through great landscapes, often also on unpaved roads. And when the fog cleared around noon, I was finally able to look to Denmark. There was a lot going on in Kappeln and Eckernförde, but people everywhere were enjoying the great weather.

On this tour everything was just right, sea, lakes, forests, hilly landscape, changeable clouds, view to the Danish islands (from the Hessenstein tower), many large flocks of birds, e.g. B. sparrows (have become really rare), kibitzes (only seen more often in regions), starlings (also become really rare), greylag geese, dunlins and as an absolute highlight 60 or 70 cranes that came by and settled in the salt marshes. Even the heavy rain shower that passed over me compensated me with a glowing rainbow tip.
