Sept Adventures 2023: Hamburg & Pietzmoor

Every year we normally have a small adventure for our anniversary in the beginning of September. Last year we decided to take a week and explore some more of Germany! First stop was a drive to Hamburg and the next morning a visit to Planten und Blumen which I always enjoy

We hung out here until it was time for lunch at a breakfast place that we love!

Then on to Pietzmoor and the first look at the Heather fields!

Though Pietzmoor is a swampy area to wander through

It was fun and we saw a moor frog which was bright blue and a European hornet which was super yellow!

After getting settled in our accommodations we went to Muang Thai for dinner - spring rolls and an exotic fruit punch

Pad Siew and Tofu with peanut sauce - this was pretty good! I do miss Thai food so it was a nice find.

So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g
