Freiburg’s See Park is beautiful, and we don’t go as much as we should. I noticed it was particularly lovely when I rode my bike through it last week. The trees were blooming, and I really wanted to stop and savor spring. Alas, I needed to meet Thom and Vinnie at their school. I made a mental note to return, and we did today.
Parks in Germany are fun. The lack of restrictions lighten the mood. This afternoon I saw a couple pushing strollers with one hand and holding mugs of beer with the other.
When we arrived at the lake, we saw people were in the water. Vinnie was annoyed we hadn’t brought swim gear. Then, she noticed a little boy was in the lake naked. My kids didn’t want to skinnydip but were thrilled to be able to enjoy the water without suits.
We met up with our Virginian friends, and I remarked to Laura how in Princeton we aren’t even allowed to stick our feet in the fountain anymore. Here, they let people swim with the swans.
