A picnic on the Spree

Spree-nighttime

Picnic-figs-moubier

Once again, we headed down to the water.

Have you got a favorite spot for picnic provisions? Our baskets were filled with buttery biscuits from the new Albrecht's on Sophienstraße, with Grüner Veltliner and Morbier from the charming Jens Garlipp on Große Hamburger Straße, with figs and rolls from the supermarket.

By nightfall, all we could see of the pleasure boats were their lights reflected in the river.

Love the abstract nature of the top picture, almost looks like a Gerhard Richter painting!
