Walking my dog… against all odds

Our lake… this morning

We are at home. In social isolation. Walking our dog Boomer and buying fresh goods for cooking are the highlights of my day. My wife is still working from our home office. We are healthy and being back in our remote spot at the lake feels better. What a treasure. Fortunately the weather has changed from horrible to good. Spring is coming. So we are able to open doors and windows. All tourists are gone. The lake is deserted. Most of the people I meet are walking their dogs. But people are trying to avoid contact. Difficult to understand for Boomer why he can’t play with his dog friends he made over the last months. And the walks are definitely shorter than before. We have to stay in the neighborhood. Which is in our case two pathways to the lake. Could be worse. But their is obviously no secure place. We are trying to minimize the risk. I am 66 but having Boomer for a few months now made me stronger. Stronger than before. Our biggest concerns are our family in the south of Germany. The virus scares us, hurts us and it makes life more difficult and strange. But it can’t beat us. Stay healthy, protect yourself and stay at the safest place you have. Happy days. Reinhold
