By the Crane Lake.
I woke up around six am and looked outside the window. It looked promising for a really nice day. The sun was just about to rise over the horizon (6:06) and there were no wind at all. So I gave my dogs their food and then I jumped in to my car and drove to the lake.
I thought that most people still would be sleeping in their caravans or at least still eat their breakfast. But I think that over a thousand people already stood by the lake and watched the cranes when I arrived. Since the morning was so nice I only had a sweater on and I had to regret that rather quick, the wind suddenly returned and it was nasty cold!
People all around me speaking all kinds of languages stood there trying to look in to their binoculars or cameras with tears in their eyes because of the strong wind 🙂 🙂 🙂 But to be honest, no binoculars were actually needed, the cranes stands only a couple of yards away 🙂
I think I had been there for fifteen minutes taking over 65 photographs when I stopped feeling my fingers and my hand became rather numb too so I returned home again 🙂 I would have stopped a bit longer if the café had been open, but I was a couple of hours to early 🙂
We took our walk as soon as I got home again and this time I had a jacket on 🙂 We walked in to the forest for a while and then turned towards the cow pasture so Nova could run free for a while, now without her collar. She got a bit to wild for the two brothers though 🙂 🙂 but I would have been too if I have had to wear a cone like that and suddenly was free from it 🙂 🙂 🙂
I had to start a fire in the stove this morning because of the strong and cold wind, it chills out the house to much. I´ll tell You the story about how I came to move to this county and eventually this cottage tomorrow. It will take some time to write it down so I better do it in Word and copy it over to the blog, I never knows how long the internet connection will last and it´s so tiresome to restart it on and on and on…. Have a great day now!
