Potsdam (and around it)
On Monday the 2nd we left (Berlin-)Lichterfelde at 8:55AM, planning to moor/stay at Potsdam again. While drawing near the latter our attention was drawn by some amazing homes alongside the water – in this...
...case the Griebnitzsee, formed during the Weichselian glaciation. That’s mighty long ago! One has either to love gardening or, alternatively, be a ‘loaded’ person to keep the gardens in this state of maintenance.
When leaving the continued Griebnitzsee and entering the Glienicker Lanke the already mentioned before (week 25) castle is visible. We visited the castle – see hereunder.
Just minutes later we entered the Tiefer See. The ‘Badestelle’ at the south-east shore was visited by a lot of people. Yes, the weather is still sunny, even a bit too hot to our liking.
On Tuesday we were approached by a(n illegally moored) neighbour, informing about the fact that his Pitbull-like dog had wrecked one of our brand-new fenders by biting it over-enthusiastically while having a swim with his inattentive boss. We expressed not to be too pleased but the damage was done – and at least he came to tell us. We didn’t notice anything, just heard a lot of noise and regarded that as mere pleasure. Because...
...we bought four new fenders of this type last May we were able to tell him the price. He paid us € 60,00 and left almost immediately. The name of his boat? ‘Maxima’, our queen, of all names. We found out that the supplier, Kok Watersport (https://www.kokwatersport.nl/), ships its merchandise to The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. For free! We ordered a new fender and are still awaiting its arrival. (It’s Sunday now…)
It was warm last week to such a level that one of us took the small (foldable) flight of stairs, hung it on the ship’s side, put on his brand-new swimming trunks and entered the cool water of the river Havel.
His better half made some pictures. She even asked him to dive. He did – and she made a picture when it looked the most laughable… Swimming again after, say, 10(?) years was magnificent.
Heb je inmiddels die nieuwe zwembroek al vaker gebruikt?

Ehhh, jazeker!! In Potsdam nog 'n paar keer, daarna ook nog in Plaue. ('t Is wel een lastig smal laddertje om weer terug aan boord te klimmen .
Zie op de zwemfoto (ik vind je een held Simon) dat “suppen” daar ook populair is. Relaxt weekje met onmisbare fietsen.

Dank je, Riet. 't Was gewoon héérlijk.
