Tree design in stones at the entrance way
A rainy day (we've had very few on this trip). We donned our rain coats and decided to go for a walk in the neighbourhood to find a cache called "Emma's Hof". We knew we would find a garden but were we in for a surprise! It's hard to imagine such a beautiful place among city apartments and town houses but this community came together to create a beautiful large garden right among these buildings. It is clearly a labour of love for all involved and in the garden we found a small building where people gather to share a cup of coffee or a glass of wine together. There is a small creek where kids can play and a beautiful mosaic wall. We were surprised to find a "WC" in this lovely place and how pretty it was with lovely lamps and a mosaic design on the wall. This is truly an oasis in the middle of the city.

Oh, the cache we set out to find, finally came to light after much hunting but we were enjoying the garden so much we almost forgot that we had come to find a cache! So it was a pleasant surprise
