The first hike after what feels like an eternity

Our first hike after a hiatus of almost three months took place around Birkenau in the Odenwald.
The weather forecast had predicted all kinds of bad weather. Perhaps that was the reason why only three of us accepted the challenge and went hiking nevertheless. Eventually, we only got into one short shower towards the end of the hike.

The area is really pretty – rolling hills, forest, pastures, panoramic views. We hiked mostly on wide trails, which I am usually not too fond of. Right now those trails are ideal, though, because we can hike side by side and still abide by the rules regarding the minimum distance between two persons.

The cake today however (rather: the Redcurrant muffins) was home-made as we were not going to stop at a café. We will continue in this fashion except if we perhaps find a place with lots of space to sit outdoors. And sadly there is no sharing of food right now to avoid spreading an infection.

Still, we had lots of laughs and a good time hiking together again!
And the next hike is already being prepared.
