mark and jonathan in the sun in berlin

#berlin #picnic #friends

summertime is picnic time in berlin! what was planned as a lazy saturday and a hot party in the evening turned out totally different. my nephew called, and when my newphew calls i can’t resist it. he asked me out to the zoological garden in berlin, i met him and my sister there and we had a splendid day (pictures soon to follow). after hours and hours running around in the sun, i started to feel quite tired and wasn’t really sure if i wanted to go to the party, as tempting as the invitation was. just in time i got a text from my friend mark:

are you busy today? How#bout an unplanned picknick this early evening at the j@xon beach / close to the j@xon residence. Crémant and/or rosé wine is chilled ….

i decided i am not busy and swapped exciting party for relaxing picnic. it turned out wonderful, relaxing and calming.

mark was already there, blanket on the green, real plates, glasses and cutlery, a huge bowl of salad with 3 variations of dressing, cold cremant, and pellegrino and cheese. heaven, lot’s of delicious cheese with french bread. it was delicious. there was even a delicious english cheddar for jonathan.

the evening sun, quiet music in the background, chilled crémant, delicious food and lovely friends. life is too good.

mark and the sun smiling!
