Sunday sweet Sunday with nothing to do but look for the last time

Biking again. It was a glorious Sunday. My last day, unless I miss the plane in the morning.
Instead of Berlin, I decided I wanted to more thoroughly see Potsdam, and save Berlin for the next time, if there is one.

My DU friends, I thank you! Your responses have been great and encouraging. It’s been fun to show and tell, and I will continue in a more measured way to reach back and present some things I got to experience, it's my plan to make some threads over time, as long as the interest continues.
I took those photos for me, and also for you.

Here is a grand and unusual sight I saw in one of the huge parks around the Cecilienhof Castle, just traipsing through the meadows, one on a leash, the other just lookin’ at me:





Not the greatest photo, but I loved the backlit basket. It was hanging in front of 13 Russian houses built by King Frederick William III - in 1826 - In memory of his friendship with Tsar Alexander I of Russia



This is one of them, which also has my borrowed awesome red bike in front. Note the low entry on that bike. I LOVE it.





Some light play in the castle.



Riding back to my friend’s house along the way there was this summer scene, take a closer look and see the teapot. Also, I tell you, along that stretch there was an area of "no clothing" called FKK in the German vernacular, and it stands for Free Body Culture.



And finally a proud and huge “Gartenzwerg”

2. I love all of these, but the little square wooden boat really resonates. Just the thing to sail down

the Erie Canal in my home town of Spencerport.

11. More of these cool photos from afar!

That's both a statement about the present, and a request for the future!

I love these images, Mira! What cool views! Those houses look like someone hung lace off the balcony! Beautiful!

13. Thank you for sharing. Germany looks so grand.

Some of my favorite music, over the years, has been by German musicians.

I try to picture myself at an outdoor German Rock Festival on a Summer's evening
listening to awesome music and seeing awesome sites all around me.

Glad you were there to share.
