Arrived in Keil and Christa's mom and dad were at a party, they'd left a pool for Alexa so spent a few hours playing. Alexa couldn't stop tipping water over herself clothed and unclothed. Christa's mom had left spag bol so had 2 portions, loads of beer then down to the cellar bar for pool and schnapps once mom and dad came back. Went to bed very pissed.
Saturday 8th July
Up at 10 dazed and confused for breakfast. Drove into Kiel parked up and then realised we'd forgotten Alexas buggy - nightmare , so I joined Christa in the hunt for the buggy shop while Harry looked after Alexa in a beer garden. Saw 1000's of bugs on man with yellow shirt handing out flyers. Went on a wild goose chase for 2k to 3 shops before we found a good quality buggy (even had quick release wheels) reduced
Sunday 9th July
Up at 10 slightly hungover for another excellent breakfast. Tour with Christa's dad and the all went 17k down the coast to Eckernforde. Christas mom cycled, Christas dad drove, Harry and Christa inline skated, Alexa got pushed by Christa in her new pushchair and I ran. Had an ice cream, beer, swim (well Harry did the Baltic sea, water was to cold for me). Volker turned up with girlfriend and family, said their hello, goodbyes. Next a fantastic BBQ which had to be done in the shed as there was intermittent rain. Then watch the World Cup final, but missed both goals tidying the dishes away. After game watched Franz Beckenbaur for the last time (he's been all over the TV during the competition).
Monday 10th July
Up at 9 for another fab breakfast, quick shower then to Gettorf railway station, big goodbyes. On my own now, negotiated ticket machine at Kiel and onto Bad Klevin. Welcome to the east, loads of bugs now liking black which I'm wearing. Stalsund and finally Greifswald in 5 hours.
