Just Rewards


Glorious weather means the bikes come out. We had 20 degrees today and only a light wind; just enough to keep you cool, should you overdo the pedalling slightly. So off we went on all these little roads, forest paths and bridle paths in our area. It is so refreshing and gives you a wonderful feeling of being at one with nature. (That sounded a bit pompous, sorry.) A gentle workout of a total of two hours, bums on saddles, meant we were allowed a treat, a stop at the Bauern Café in Lüttelforst. Does it not look tempting?

Spring is also finally here, too (without the rain ;)) And what a delicious reward!

CS - yeah, the cake was called 'Obst Salat', sounds light but turned out to be quite substantial in the end!

Hi from a fellow expat!

The weather looks gorgeous - lucky you. It,s still chilly in Canada which is actually fairly unusual for March. Can't wait to this kind of landscape...

Zhu - Thanks for visiting. Yes, at last the weather seems to have understood that it is now May and it has to produce some pleasant conditions. It's gorgeous right now.

Oh such beautiful photos.. summer just jumped out at you over there. I love those yellow fields - we lived outside of Munich for about 2 years and driving past those raps flowers was a really highlight.

Diane - yes, spring has got that wonderful freshness about it.
Lynda - those fields remind me of southern Sweden, which looks like a green and yellow chess board in May/June.
