Before I start with my first September pictures, here are three more from August. O.K. took them on his own after work walk on the 31st. Looking at them, I think you can see why I like spending my weekends there so much (of course O.K. being the most important and best reason!).
The 1st of September, a Wednesday, saw me working at my client's office. Two of the people I work with there usually go for a walk during their lunch break, and they have asked me to join them. The office building is in an industrial estate at the edge of town, with fields and orchards only a few steps away. As long as the good weather continues, we will be keeping up our lunch break walks.
On the 2nd of September, my boss (RJ, as some of you may remember him) had organised an evening out for us: A picnic on the lawn in front of Solitude Palace! I had not seen my two colleagues in a long time (apart from an online meeting every now and then), and it was really lovely to meet up.
The evening was gorgeous; not too hot, and while there were several other groups of people dotted around the lawn, there was plenty of space for everyone, and the entire atmosphere was peaceful; nobody had music blaring or was drunk, shouting aggressively or anything like that.

|Eight minutes later (at 8:35 pm) the lights in the arcades under the palace went on, along with the evening chill signalling the end of our get-together.|
We had so much food and drink (all brought RJ) that three times as many could have joined us. When it got dark and chilly, we packed up, dividing the leftovers between us. It was a truly beautiful evening and great start of September.
