Mark and I again got up relatively early and went for another walk on the cliffs, this time looping around the other way. It was really beautiful, even though we could feel the walks of the last few days and were a good bit slower for some reason. My favorite spot on the cliffs is where this amazing old oak stands, now rather close to the cliffs, which are steadily eroding. It is climbable, and the view out to the ocean with the wheat fields behind us is gorgeous. We came home around 10, after about 5 miles of walking, and then Uschi showed up around noon; we all had lunch after Uschi, Kati and I went to the Aldi for some extra supplies, and then Uschi took the four of us to Wismar, the nearby town, which was a total surprise in terms of its absolute beauty–it’s famous for its three brick Gothic churches, one of them the fourth-largest cathedral in Germany, but all made out of brick, the other in various states of being restored / preserved, but I had never been, and none of us expected the basically intact 17th-18th century downtown with these totally charming houses that have by now almost all been restored / renovated. Cobblestone streets, a few beautiful art deco houses as well as the older town houses with neoclassicist gables of all shapes and forms, and then quite a bit of that amazing brick architecture. Even the kids were quite impressed, although the fact that Murnau’s Nosferatu was filmed here didn’t mean anything to them.:) We took a slight detour through the harbor and to the nearby Insel Poel, connected by only one road/bridge to the land, but otherwise rather boring (we didn’t get out of the car), and then Uschi dropped us off at home. We had a very pleasant Abendbrot and Kai, Mark and I did another round of beach walk/watching the evening sun from the pier (no live music Sunday night) and we went home about 10 to showers and bedtime.
