      My today's tour on the edge of the Siebengebirge you can ergoogeln under "5-brook tour" or "5-brook hike". But even with a precise study of the course I find only 4 streams that play a role in this tour: You go along the Laubachs, the Quirrenbach and the Logebachs and crosses in between the Pleisbach. Quirrenbach and Logebach are the source streams of the Pleisbach. After unification of the two source streams then the Laubach flows into the Pleisbach.The round is quite well suited for the current wet weather conditions, as most of the way is gravel or fortified. But there was also a certain amount of mud, so I still have to take care of the desludging of my shoes.An interesting highlight is the conveyor belt, which transports the material from the Hühnerberg quarry ("Chicken Hill") down to the loading station. The path crosses this conveyor belt, which was in operation today.Here are two little movies of it:Overall, a nice and varied tour with beautiful views of the Siebengebirge.

      I have never been in Eichholz before. I've noticed this village, which belongs to Hennef, but often when looking at the map. And so I got the idea that it would be nice and funny to walk from Eichholz to Buchholz. So I let myself in Eichholz "suspend" and then I hiked home in this brilliant hiking weather. This is how the autumn really is fun. 👍😀

      Bread rolls are available at bakery Bolte am Rosengarten. Especially the super delicious "Souls" -Brötchen are unique. 😋

      With dry shoes again today we went to the eastern end of the island, after I first visited the observation dune west of the village. Eastwards this time I took the path through the dunes, for me one of the most beautiful ways on Wangerooge.The remnants of the eastern investor were underwater this time, a very different picture than when I was circumnavigating the island. On the way back I collected a few meters of altitude, by taking one or the other passage from and to the beach. A wonderful tour! 👍

      Today we made a trip to the west of the island to the new lighthouse. We also had to look at the Bünder Schullandheim, which we know from our schooldays, now, of course, only from the outside. On the way back we got a heavy rain 🌧. My rain jacket worked wonderfully, but pants, socks and shoes are now completely soaked. You can tell from this section that we did not take pictures anymore ;-) And now that I'm writing this, the sun is shining again. ☀️ That's how it is here on the islands, it will not be boring ...

      Today we made a hike to the west of the island!
      On the way to the new lighthouse and "Bünder Schullandheim" we came through a quaint dunes and heathland.
      When we were at the western end, we had a nice view of the Ostende Spiekeroogs! But dark clouds were already billowing in the sky! 🤔 In front of us was still about a 4.5 km long way back! Whether we would survive this dry ??
      Unfortunately, no! About 2 km later, contrary to the weather forecast, the locks opened and with water in our shoes we arrived at our apartment. My rain jacket gets in the intensive test the grade "4"! In the zipper area and on the shoulders, my t-shirt got wet!

      In sunny weather this morning I started my Wangerooge orbit. So it remained in the entire western part of the island. On the way on the beach from the promenade to Ostend clouded up and it came to meet me a strong easterly wind. The path on the south side from the east end back to the village was then sheltered from the wind and it came along with the high clouds an almost meditative mood. On the way around the western end, pavement is the order of the day, but the paths in the east are mostly natural. Overall, I really liked this because of the length but quite exhausting tour and I'm glad to have granted me this over 20 km.

      Having set off in dry weather, it has drizzled most of the time on this little tour. It was still nice to meet a part of Wangerooge, which we have largely overlooked on our last island stay 5 years ago.
