Pimped an old rusty kitchen knife:
Friday just after work I bought some essentials from my favorite farm shop. And they had a small fleamarket there, where I also bought this kitchen knife by “Friedrich Otto Stöcker Solingen”. Not a real beauty but rugged and easily to sharpen. It needed some some polishing, oil and a treatment on the wetstones. Just fitting wonderful to the other knifes.
Mushrooms in the forrest: It was ment to be just a lazy walk in a nearby forrest but I never saw this much mushrooms. With only a knowledge of about 3-4 mushrooms it´s hard to start to collect. And answers like, “hm it could be a …” or “ah this looks probably like a …” isn´t too appealing to pick and cook them for a family dinner. So we were generous and leaving them for the others.
Sailing: Not even a year since I started my new job as a boatbuilder but since then I learned a lot about boats. Im blessed not only to work with my hands but also to get in touch with some of the finest boats on the globe. Thanks Sven for everything!
Remains of a Wulf´s breakfast: I will not post the location here (I do not want to scare someone away (coming here by a search term) who plans to go in this wonderful area). But if you read my blog regularly you already know where it might be.
So one evening I was told by an old man who lives in one village only during the summer time that he saw a young “Lupo“. He was talking only italian the whole time but “Lupo” i could definitely figure out and asked again later and he pointed upward the hill. I wasn´t sure what to think about his observation but the next day when we walked early in the morning on a path and found this forearm of a deer I remembered his story. Im not 100% sure if this deer died of a wulf but other options I checked and couldn´t find another reason. The other skeletton of a deer we found on a less walked trek and this one was for sure a bit older. But the leg looked really fresh to me. Remembering Jack London I could calm myself and Maria down that wulfs do not go after humans and if – only in wintertimes when they are close to starved to death.
Hiking around Andelsbuch and watching the Paragliders: Yesterday we went for a short hike to the Bregenzerwald and went to the Niedere. The area on top of the mountain is a popular spot for Paragliders. We aways saw them flying when we entered this area or left it, but never that close. Amazing panorama from up there, a full 360 view. I have to go back there very early to watch a sunrise.
