Mike is away today and tomorrow,
with the camera.
So I thought I would show you photos I took yesterday.
I think it was one of the nicest days so far this year.
We took our morning walk with the hounds.
But crossed over to the other side of the river.
In the photo above
you can see ours and the neighbouring village.
It looks like one long village but in fact is separated by
In the photo below
we're looking across the river to where I took you on the walk
through the woods
with all the fallen trees.
You can see at the top it's quite flat.
Some of it is covered with woodland,
and some of it is given over to agriculture.
Either way it's home to deer
and other animals.
Later in the day,
we took a drive a few miles down river.
Mike had someone to see
while I checked out the shopping centre.
The shopping centre consists of a large supermarket
and one or two other outlets.
I spent most of the time in the supermarket,
and most of that time
looking at the Easter goodies.
There were lots of chocolates.
Different shapes, sizes
I've noticed how the shops in Germany caters for the seasons.
In October there were lots of decorations for houses
It's the same now for Easter.
Decorations for doors, windows,
They looked lovely.
I took photos of just two of these displays,
but there were more,
I just didn't want to draw attention to myself.
Not that there were that many people around.
Our usual shopping trips are to the local supermarkets,
of which there is a choice.
But this one is larger
and therefore has more choice.
It was different.
I think I'll come here to do the regular shop
every now and then,
just for a change,
and to see what their latest seasonal promotions are.
