Neuensee

I discovered this little spot on one of my walks this week. It's Cafe am Neuensee in Tiergarten. It's a little fairytale oasis in the middle of Tiergarten where you can rent boats and drink beer (what else!). It's actually quite a popular summer drinking spot and hardly unknown, but it was a first for me. Won't be the last time though. Think there are another few afternoons left where I can read and drink Apfelschorle and Alcohol-free Beer beside this lake before July comes around. Yes, I'm quite getting used to this 'growing baby' business!

This weekend is another long weekend around here but think it'll be a quiet one for us. Matthias is still working hard trying to rid the world of dangerous food-borne pests, which for him means another weekend spent at work. Don't envy him really. Meanwhile I'm planning on taking a break from ticking things off my "to-do" list and getting back to the important business of relaxing pre-baby. 

How about you? I know Australia is celebrating a royal Birthday and a few other catholic countries must be celebrating WhitSunday. Does anyone have any exciting plans?

Looks like a great place there in Tiergarten - must put this on my to go list next time I am in Berlin (which will be in July). :)
I am off to Frankfurt later this afternoon as I will be going to a wedding tomorrow. The rest of the long weekend I will spent visiting some family and then realxing on my sofa :)
Happy weekend!! :)

That seems to be a comfortable place. In the park relaxing and a good beer to drink - that must be quality time.

I wish you a nice long weekend!

What a gorgeous photo - so peaceful. I wish I was there! This weekend is too crazy for me, we have a wedding to play and two days of an art fair to sell at.

This looks like a wonderful place to spend some time Clare! So serene looking.

My plans this weekend are a bit of gardening, a bit of relaxing, and a bit of time with my camera.

In a couple of weeks we will be celebrating Independence Day (4th of July).

I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend.

wow what a lovely relaxing place to sit, enjoy these last few weeks before the baby comes. I was reading an article today about how people are tweeting during their labour.....why would anyone want to do that??

Wow, it does look like a fairy tale, so peaceful and idyllic. My plans were full of farmer's market work and extreme heat...I am loving being in the cold shelter of my home now ;)
