Solingen-Höhrath, Germany - 16th May 2008

By: olgamaus

Hi Mummy,
yesterday in the evening it started raining like hell. We are living in the attic storey here and enormous raindrops fell onto the windows in the ramp. Today in the morning there was still a little bit rain but at noon the sun was shining again.

Katja met her friend Kerstin to take a long walk. Of course Angus and me went with them. We drove to Solingen-Höhrath to walk around the "Sengbach-Talsperre". This is a water reservoir dam and you are not allowed to walk close to the water. The walking path goes uphill and downhill around the lake and from some points you have a stunning view onto the dam.

We parked the car close to some stables. On many paddocks we saw horses.



On our way to the dam we came along  this funny fence. The owner had fastened small wooden boards to the fence. On these boards he put real shoes in which plants are growing. Katja told us that these shoes are standing there for years already.




This sign also is fastened to the fence.


We went into the forrest. In the background you can see "Schloss Burg", a medieval castle built in 12th century.


We reached the dam. The sign explains to you that the dam contains drinking water and what you are allowed to do here, better what you are forbidden to do.


This is the concrete dam.


The dam is one of the oldes dams in Germany. It was built from 1900 until 1903.


We made our way around the lake. The path went uphill and downhill. Sometimes we could not see the lake, but then the view was beautiful.



This is a motorway bridge.


On our way back to the car we saw this beautiful blooming bush. It is called "snowball" here, do you know this plant also?


We walked for almost three hours! Back home we tried to measure the walked distance with google earth. It must have been about 10 - 12 km.

We are all tired now,

good night
