We were picked up this morning at 6:30am to go to the Hamburg Fisch Marck ( fish market ) Obviously we had not been there for a long time & it has grown, it is a focal point in Hamburg every Sunday morning from 5am until strictly 9:30am, you can but all sorts of fresh fruit & veg, meat, fish, flowers & potted herbs & plants as well as many other types of other goodies, it was pretty packed when we arrived about 6:45am. We had a fantastic time checking out all the goods & watching the sellers, some are real showmen & they get a large crowd around them & sell their goods, it was fun to watch. We purchased a few things, especially toward 9:30 when they practically give stuff away.
We then went on a nostalgic trip to Iserbrook where Rita & I lived with Rita’s grand parents in 1969 1970, was great to see some of the original homes in Andersenstrasse still being in use. We walked up to the local pub & store then continued on our journey to the river town of Blankenese, only 10 minutes further which was where we were married, it is still a beautiful locality right on the Elbe river.
We then went onward to Margaret, Sandra, Christian & their kids home for a BBQ. They live in a peaceful rural area about 40 minutes from the city. We had beers, wine, schnapps and a great feast of fish, meat & everything associated with food, by the end of the feast we were all very full, it was great.
