I thought I might show you a little more about the area where I live now. So the walks with my baby gave me plenty opportunity to take beautiful pictures with lots of sunshine and coloured trees. Maybe I'll add new pictures now and then, so if you like, keep your eyes open.
A few kilometres away from here, we have a beautiful reservoir, where you can make a tour by boat:
And now to our little town. We have a castle here. When I go there with the baby, I carry him on my back. Going there with the pram is not a good idea, because the footpath is very steep and there are stairs, too.
In the park of the castle there is a stage, too, where they used to play theatre :
A view towards the market. In the centre: the primary-school. To the right: the church
The Church from the outside. Inside it has a famous organ, built by Mr. Silbermann.
And now a few pictures from the outside of the castle:
Finally for today: A few pictures from our walk at the riverside:
This is it for today.
Thank you very much for looking in. Kind regards, Bente
What a fabulous looking place, somewhere to put on my list of places to visit.
Hi Bente, that again is a lovely autumnal photo and I can see the rainbow. That sure sounds like some intricate manoeuvring that's involved into getting wee Karl safe and snug, in his carrier! He obviously loves it and it is good to get them out in the fresh air.
Hello everyone, thanks again for looking in, and for all the kind words.
Soem of you have observed how content Karl is when I carry him on my back. This is absolutely true. We haven't carried him like this from the beginning. We started that only recently, in July. We had an appointment with a counsellor for carrying babies. She showed us just a few ways to carry Karl, and she said time must show if Karl will like it, as he is not used to it. We could tell very quickly that he likes it very much. When I "put him on", I have to take him first onto my hip, on my right hand side, and then somehow showe him over to my back. Then I have to put my right arm from the back to my front, between Karl and me. This is a highly ticklish moment. Then I have to see that Karl's both arms are "free". This is not often the case. one arm ist always between Karl's body and mine, so I have to take it out there. This is also always ticklish. Karl always laughes. Then I have to tie the straps very tight. If Karl didn't like this, he would scream. But he only makes sweet little sounds. And when he is fastened securely, he keeps "talking". Often he falls asleep one time or other. I alwas notice it before. The "talking" gets less frequent, he doesn't turn his head around any more, and I can feel that he is getting "heavier" (sound stupid, I know, but I don't know how to describe it otherwise). Then I can feel Karl's entire body relaxing, and his "teeth clattering" ( sounds stupid, too, as he only has 2 teeth at the moment, and there is not much that could clatter).
Now to my pictures from today. We didn't take a walk, as weather was not reliable. And apart from that I had to cook baby-food for lunch. I always cook a big amount that lasts for a week or so. But when I prepared the vegetables, I noticed that it was raining, although the sun was shining at th same time. So I took out my camera and watched out for a rainbow. And there was one, if only a faint one!
Thanks, Bente, for the lovely photos of where you live and especially for the lovely photo of you and little Karl.
So lovely to hear from you Bente & to share your town views, so much of interest to see ... such a delightful pic of you with Karl, not long now to the first birthday celebrations!
Hello Bente, thanks for the new thread from your home town. It looks lovely, and the buildings very grand. The autumnal colours are lovely. Little Karl was loving his walk about, sound asleep.
Always interesting to see somewhere new Bente, and your photos show a lovely area with interesting buildings and wow that fabulous bridge, spectacular.
