The Light is Coming Back

This afternoon, my husband and I took a one hour walk through the Hamburg quarter Winterhude, along the river Alster and canals, a region which is characterized by lovely shady gardens behind houses and villas of the more expensive kind, possibly an idyll in summer, but all private.


The last picture shows the view onto Hamburg city, so you see how close this is to the center. The lake is not a natural one, but it is the river Alster which was retained in the 12th century to serve a large Mill.
