Another Bank Holiday snuck up on us and so we went for a ride… I also got to pick up a new chainset and gear ratios to replace my Carbon Campag Record. Super-tough engineering from Chemnitz!
In Germany I have noticed that so many of the fields are bordered by wild flora and fauna, with poppies almost everywhere (they even grow out of the concrete). I have been told that Sunflowers were once a regular sight but not now.
Sadly it is a naff picture but we spotted over ten Red Kites catching the warm thermal air and they circled a field picking off the mice etc. This was an amazing sight.
Cake was Mango Torte for me.
