6th Picture Game!
This picture is taken on a beautiful country road about a half a block from our house in Bremen. It doesn't really do justice to the beauty of this road. We like to take Sophie on walks there on the weekends or if the weather is nice ride our bikes. Its a long tree lined dirt road with horse farms along the side and it opens up to farmland, fields of corn, cow pastures, and a few random houses along the miles of bike paths. On many days you see nobody and others all you hear is the ringing of a bike bell to move over, very little noise , its so peaceful and tranquil but also a little eerie. I often have "Children of the Corn" flashbacks, that was not a good movie for me!
The first time we did a bike ride on the Country road was right after we moved here, it was a Sunday and my husband Craig decided we would pack some fruit and drinks and off we would go! It was beautiful for the first hour or so, but the path kept going and going with no real end insight. Just fields and more fields and cows everywhere ,I felt a little uneasy considering dark clouds were building and we could hear thunder. Craig got out is BlackBerry, armed with GPS, "Oh we are fine, going in the right direction No problem!" But there was a problem it started raining and raining hard and thundering. I was freaking out, we were in a maze of farms out in the middle of Germany, soaking wet and on our bikes and yes we were LOST. An hour later we made it home soaked and barely speaking to our navigator from Hell. Whenever he suggests going for a bike ride in the country I always hestitate.
