At the "beach"

Is the weather up or down? Coming or going? Personally I've loved it now that the temperatures are lingering in the low +20's and I'm able to enjoy the sun without melting in it. I have not been to the beach once this summer, mostly because when it was hot, it was too hot to move. As a sorry replacement to the real thing, beach-less Friedrichshain offers a variety of beach bars. My latest find is Oranke Orange at a very unexpected location on Karl-Marx-Allee; sun chairs, sand and a little wading pool in the midst of all the pompous socialist architecture. It's not the beach but it's something!

  1. I had a little trip to the Mueggelsee yesterday. The water was lovely (if a bit shallow until you were a long way out) and it was nice cycling through the woods. It really felt like summer. But it looks like autumn has arrived today :o(

  2. Great idea when you can't make it to the beach. Thanks for the suggestion.

  3. So far Schlachtensee was my favourite lake to go to. I really want to go to Müggelsee soon! Maybe summer isn't over yet...
