Chestnuts! We went to the two trees in the nearby park, expecting to have to knock down a few remaining chestnuts, but instead found a large number under the trees.

After the chestnuts we went to a small creek near there, to float a boat down it, wading in the creek. A very wet affair, none of the gum boots were long enough.

Sandy's (Bedstemor's) birthday, a prime year 79. We went to the old goods railway station (godsbanegård), now a culture centre, where we got a guided tour of all the workshops. We ended in the ceramics workshop, and got offered clay to shape, which was made good use of. After that, off to Espress House and an afternoon snack/drink.

The boys helped with the work in the cellar, new base floor.

Atumn holidays, one day at Dokk1. They had a creative workshop we had booked, and the kids got going straight away on their projects, and made interesting creations.

August 2021

Mountain holidays, the boys, Lars and I. Train to Hamburg, night train from there to Munich, then on to Berchtesgaden, the last bit by bus.

First day out, the obligatory boat ride to the other end of the lake (Königssee) and the two-hour walk to the higher up lake and to its end. It was drizzling.

The day of the big walk up to the "hut" at Kühroint.

Lars's shots on the day they walked up to the Kühroint house, a step on the way to the first peak of the Watzmann. After Kühroint and a few hours climb to the peak there is the big Watzmannhaus. In both houses you can spend the night. I conked out with an extremely sore left foor about three hours after we started, so after that Lars was on his own with the boys. They made it to Kühroint and spent the night, and went on to Watzmannhaus next day, stopped briefly there and went on. They were stopped halfway up by a thunder storm and had to turn back.

End of Lars's mountain walk photos, but a few of mine here
