Today I'm showing you the second part of the photos of our little weekend trip to Eastern Germany, that is day 3 and 4. Actually the photos were all taken on day 3 (Saturday) because on day 4 we left for Düsseldorf before noon.
We visited Patrick's granparents and it was his grandma's birthday celebration, so we all dressed up for the event. She had planned lunch, a bus drive to the lake, a trip with a ship, a bus drive back to where we already had lunch and then supper and evening programme. Damn, this women is an organising freak ;)
The photos are all about water today, so you'll see a lot of blue because of the lake and my outfit.
Here we go:
♥ bird dress: pimkie ♥ cardi: h&m ♥ shoes: ebay ♥
Patrick was so kind to take a photo of my outfit at out hotel room before lunch. Below we already were on our way to the lake.
I don't have photos of the lunch because a) everyone around me always gets pretty annoyed when I take pictures of them eating and b) there were so many people I didn't really know (all Patrick's relatives), so I wouldn't have been able to upload the photos with all the foreign folks' permission anyway. Oh and c) I believe you wouldn't have been interested in them haha :)

So, after lunch a bus took us to the Goitzsche lake where we went on a boat that drove us around the lake for one and a half hours. The weather was perfect, it felt like being on real vacation somewhere by the sea :)
The boat restaurnt also offered coffee and cakes but we were all so full from lunch that we kindky refused. Instead we sat on the front deck with cold drinks and enjoyed the sunshine and a pleasant breeze.
After leaving the ship we took a walk on the lakeside and watched the lively coming and going there. It really is a very nice local recreation area there, you can do so many things like for example sailing, surfing, riding a pedal-boat, swimming.... everything.

Aww it was lovely there! But I'm so glad to be back home again, I've had enough of all the relatives until next year ;) They always kept teasing me because I've gained so much weight since the last time they had seen me, oh it was annoying... I'm totally okay with it when somebody tells me that I look like I've gained a few kilos. But I'm not okay with it when these people keep rubbing it in my face at every opportunity... I was like "Hey people, I'm working at it, keep cool for God's sake!" in my mind, but it doesn't matter if I had spoken it out because you can't change elder people anyway.
I'm sending some sunshine over from Düsseldorf to anybody who would like to have some ;)
