New tag around the corner.
Visited Mrs. G. and we went out for a tour along Werdersee. It was rather cold with an Easterly blowing in. However, her thoughtful daughter has given her a sitting bag for the wheelchair for Xmas, so she was alright. We saw several groups of people skinny dipping. Sic. Must be a date for "Anbaden" (=first dip of the year). That's a Northern German tradition: on a fixed date, you swim, no matter the weather. When I was a kid, the first of May way latest possible Anbadetag (day of first dip). I grew up by a small river, so most years we dipped in by mid April. And that was before climate change. But these people today - we heard them whooping. Made us laugh.
Another good day :)
