Bill and I took the dogs on another nature walk today. This time, because it rained all day yesterday, we elected to avoid the trails and stuck to the paved roads. We ended up making a big loop. As we were walking, I couldn’t help but notice all the rotting fruit on the ground. In September in Germany, all the apple, plum, and pear trees are heavy with fruit, much of which never gets harvested. So it falls to the ground where it ferments and makes sort of a vinegary smell. I remembered this from our last time here and of course nothing’s changed!
Lots of mushy pears!
Today’s walk was short, but educational. I discovered a new area near our house. The dogs got to blow off some steam and Bill and I burned off some breakfast. Now he’s going to do schoolwork and I’m going to do some more writing. Hopefully we’ll get some sun tomorrow.
