D · Early feeling of spring in February [23 February 2021]
Short, dark winter days, together with restrictions to stem Corona infections, were already stressful enough for people. The onset of winter in February with unusually extensive snowfall and persistent frost causing road and rail traffic to collapse in many places in North Rhine-Westphalia, restricted life even further.
Also, a few naturists took advantage and went on their first nude hike of this year in a city forest of their home town Hagen in Westfalia, less than 1000 metres from the main train station. The hike was delightful for more than two hours. In between, we took a break on a bench in the sunshine with coffee and cake, which Thomas had carried. We exchanged spring greetings and good wishes with many other people along the way.
