Wednesday 8 June

The day commenced overcast, but as the overnight rain moved away northeast into Germany and Denmark, the sun came out and the mercury crept up to about 18C / 64F. After catching up on things Internet before lunch, we headed out for a 5-mile jaunt afterwards. For new readers to this blog, I am currently in a relatively hilly area, which rises to all of 370 feet above sealevel. So, off we went through the forests to the Emma Pyramid, a local viewpoint. The only problem is that it is surrounded by trees, which have grown quite tall and are currently in full leaf. So you can't see a thing from the viewpoint! Anyway, went off back towards the Heathlands and followed the cycletrack that leads towards the Koningsweg, only to turn off halfway down and return home via the village cemetery and the Castle.

I envy your walk and the ability to do it too. I'm sadly out of shape and hilly country does my knees in so I'm all about walking on the flat level ground here. The pictures are beautiful as always. I enjoy seeing other parts of the world so much.
