Vacation. 

Sorry to bore you guys and gals with my vacation stuff, but it is inevitable. Even weirdos like me go on vacation with the wife and kid. 


There’ll be hiking.


There’ll be waters. 


In case the weather decides to present us with an english summer,


I come prepared!
I don’t know if I’ll be able to supply you with new and exciting material while away. So I had prepared this little assembly of adventure for you.

Take care, A.

Creeks and Trees

The lcoation is called “Schwarzenberg Allee” here in my hometown. There is this little creek running down at the side of the way. It’s not as “feral” as usual, but we were there with the pram, and that requires a more even surface to drive on.

Please forgive the quality of the pictures, had to use my wife’s cam (cellphone) as mine (cellphone) was experiencing trouble with the SD Card…(perhaps I should switch to a smaller one, 16GB is a lot to take on…)

The creek

A pond fuelled by the recent rains, trees usually don’t grow out of ponds.

Trees, Trees, Trees and Paths

A lonely statue in the middle of nowhere…

Lakes & Sunshine

Again out in nature, I begin to discover that I am behaving totally NON (cliché) nerd-like recently. Always out and about in nature and all…anyways, here’s to you “Wienerberg” 4th August 2013!

Let me just say outright, even though bathing/swimming is forbidden in the largest of the lake there were hundreds of people in the water. Why is swimming forbidden? Officially: because they are fishing grounds. Inofficially: It’s a deathtrap! The whole place was once a site where silt was being “mined” for use as bricks. Later it became a dumping ground. There are vertical shafts 1 by 1 meter which can collapse at ANY time. Suction would drown ANYBODY. There are fences, railroad tracks and lorries down there – enough crap to get stuck in and die.
I’m no friend of natural waters anyways but this is the last place I’ll be going in…

Waters and Butterflies II

I have returned to the running waters of the creek, mostly in order to cool down our dog, and in order to catch some cooler breaths of air as Sahara Heat was being shoved over europe.
Enjoy!

Waters and Butterflies

Went outside again, this time with my father in law, my wife, my son and our dog.

A beautiful path through the floodplains of a little creek and a trail that runs next to it.


In between the twigs and the rocks small butterflies in turquoise fluttered around.


That’s the kind of Backdoor I’d like…make the path and the creek not AS public as this one, and more shade, but all in all…


Is it a second creek, or sewage hat is joining the creek next to that bridge? Looked like fresh water…

As with the last outdoor post – maybe more on a later date. 😉

Watchers and Guardians…

Went into the woods today, and I thought I’d let you see what the woods have to offer

Tower

Pond / Quagmire

Hurlocks attacking

Really, first time I went there, I thought that they must be rushing over the ridge any moment! 😀

But I let my imagination run amok rather easily, after all I am a writer and thus blessed with a very active imagination. These woods however help a lot, back in 2011 I found this:

2011

in the exact same spot today I found this:

2013

The location is watched over, or guarded, by this fella:

Watcher / Guardian

So yeah, once all my projects have come to a satisfying end, I will write about these woods, and how beautiful they are, but for now I’m letting these images speak for themselves.
