A beautiful day, and since I had a lunch date in Starnberg, I decided to ride out on my bike. Friday is a good day to visit in Starnberg: Daniel is home on Fridays and when the grands come from school we can all have lunch together.
It was still warm enough to eat outside in Daniel's wonderful garden, full of tomato plants heavy with this year's bounty, also melons, pumpkins, cucumbers, garden herbs were in abundance. A little paradise. We had a fine meal of pasta with salmon and broccoli sauce, topped with mushrooms that Daniel had collected in the woods.
I left my bike in Starnberg so that I could come out again and ride back home. Taking the train out and walking from the station to Daniel's is almost as much effort as cycling the whole distance - almost. Cycling is certainly more enjoyable. I got there around noon, we had brunch together (actually their breakfast), and then got on my bike. I prepared a different route for the way back, through Forstenrieder Park, actually a forest, which was much nicer than the route on the previous day.
