On our island vacation a walk on the beach was of course not missing. The weather was exciting (contingent ;-)) and so we first made our way to the Pirolatal, then turned right and then a cappuchino in the center, before finally making a soft landing on the beach in a beach chair. Here I tried to give you a few impressions of sun, beach, sea, waves and clouds. Because of the April weather, the conditions were good. All in all a nice, sunny and refreshing walk.

Today we went on the nature trail "Flinthörn". It started in the center of Langeoog and after a few hundred meters on a narrow pad path through a very idyllic, small forest or shrub area. Then we went on a dike and later right on the nature trail "Flinthörn". The nature trail "Flinthörn" lies on the south-western tip of Langeoog. It leads to the most important breeding and resting places on the island. The nature trail begins on the 7.40 meter high Flinthörndeich. Then he leads to an observation and information platform on the edge of the dunes. Here you can learn something interesting about local flora and fauna on display boards. Back on the dike we went on the same path and then on the dike to the small port of Langeoog. In the "cabin at the port" we treated ourselves to a short lunch break. Super delicious crab rolls and also a delicious East Frisian tea. We both really liked the cabin at the harbor. Here is the link langeoog-restaurant.de Then we went back to the village unspectacular. All in all a very nice tour, although the weather weakened somewhat at the end with drizzle.

On Friday I did another little exploration tour in Vechta and Umzu with Sabine.
It started more or less at the Kuhmarkt to photograph Rolf Dieter Brinkmann's former home. de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolf_Dieter_Brinkmann We continued through quiet residential areas and the next destination was the Vardel estate.
The forest area there is very beautiful, but the Vardel estate is quite unspectacular and private.
The then went on the "Old Railway Dam" from Vechta to Langförden.
A beautiful route and very quiet. A new section was inaugurated in Vechta a few days ago. The surveyors were still underway there. (Photo). In Langförden near the church we had a cappuchino and then we went back to Vechta. In Vechta we have a detour to mine
beloved Toncoole (outdoor pool; day of opening 2020) and then drove back home through the Welper and Füchteler forest. All in all a nice, sunny tour.

Today I did a nice sunny tour in the north and west of Vechta. The occasion was a visit to a friend in Goldenstedt. This time I did not drive the busy road from Vechta to Goldenstedt, but I drove the Langendamm very comfortably. On the way I visited Arkeburg for the first time. If you are in the area, you should definitely take a look at the Arkeburg. Here is a great link: von-doellen-stiftung.de/ringwall-arkeburg.
Since my friend wanted to bring his new e-bike to Bakum for maintenance, I decided to take a quick trip over Bakum and after a leisurely cappuchino break, I went back to Vechta on beautiful trails.

Yesterday I did a nice bike tour with Sabine from Vechta to Dötlingen in sunny weather. To make it short today: a great tour on low-traffic country roads and varied nature. A particularly beautiful section of the route is from Glaner Braut into the Huntetal to Dötlingen. Dötlingen itself is a really beautiful picture-book village. Many cities from Bremen and Oldenburg have increasingly settled here since the 1980s. I can understand you.

Today Katja and I went for a nice walk with some friends from Heusenstamm in Heusenstamm. It started in a residential area and after a few meters you were already in the green. The destination was the Seeblick restaurant, which I had visited last summer and ate there very well. So this time too. We were not disappointed. Then we went to the nature reserve "See am Goldberg". A very beautiful landscape with a rich flora and fauna. We didn't know the area yet. We liked it very much. Past the cemetery we ended up at the castle and finally we went through the gate back to our friends. All in all a nice walk, although a little more sun would not have hurt the tour. But I am just noticing that after the last sunny months (!) A whining at a very high level. ;-)

In the 90s, Hohemarkstrasse in Oberursel was the ramp to Feldberg. Well then, "The Times are Changing (Bob Dylan)" ... Now I turn right beforehand. At the weekend I visited Katja with some very dear friends of ours in Oberursel and we then have one with the nice family Holiday walk made in the Vordertaunus. Great weather, relaxed and new impressions collected at this end of the world ;-). p.s. Since I have lived in Sachsenhausen, the Taunus has been neglected. But you can not have it all. :-)
