It's a sunny morning and we have a traditional bicycle date. Every spring sometime around Easter, that is whenever we get a nice day, we ride our bikes with our friend Jane to Schleissheim, 13 km north of Munich, for a beer garden breakfast - without beer. Bavarian beer garden etiquette allows you to bring your own food but not drinks. But since we were there early and knew that the stands selling either coffee or beer wouldn't be open yet, we violated the tradition and brought our own coffee in a thermos, Jane brought the Easter cake.
We enjoyed our picnic at the tables under the chestnut trees. The leaves on the trees were just beginning to open, but then we didn't need shade. The sun was welcome.
As tradition will have it, after our coffee we took a walk in the park behind Schleissheim Palace.
Perfect weather for our pre-Easter outing. Although the morning was cool, by the time we got on our bikes for the ride back home we didn't need our warm jackets any more.
