This Friday, we couldn't cope anymore with quarantine. And as we are allowed to go to the woods or outside to get some air, we decided to go to Tannenmühle, one of our favorite Black Forest restaurants since forever. No, don't worry, no one was there as it is forbidden to gather together in public.
Tannenmühle started as a mill here in the Black Forest with a tiny restaurant next to it. With the years, the restaurant got larger and larger, and they started breeding trouts, building guest rooms, and they even have a petting zoo and started breeding other animals like deers.
I asked Tannenmühle if we could have a small picnic on their premises, and they said yes! Hooray for us! We packed the fox, our picnic blanket and some snacks and drinks and drove to the small village of Grafenhausen, where my parents have an Inn. I thought I'll do a Fox Test and see how versatile it is for short trips. As it is a super light stroller and folds quite nicely, it is the perfect companion for excursions if you don't have the Ant already.
We usually walk through the woods these days, and we love that the wheels of our Bugaboo Fox can be locked for long stroller through nature, and it is light and easy to steer when we are in the city... A real All-Terrain.
Since last week the Fox2 is available with a couple of simple changes. The folding is supposed to be even more comfortable than it is now, and you can fold it in one piece. It has a peek-a-boo window like our Cameleon3 used to have. But I am super happy with our Fox first gen., and having the "Sister Board" is just fabulous as I can manage with 2 small kids while shopping or traveling.
Being in a place with as much History as Tannenmühle is fantastic and even better with such great weather. For the non-German speakers, "Tannen" means fir trees, and "Mühle" means mill...roughly translated. Our picnic was just in front of the old mill, as you can see.
Such a pity we couldn't eat there this time. They have mouth-watering trout specialties, which are prepared in a variety of ways, and have earned them an outstanding reputation across this area. And they sell their trouts as well, I got some fresh ones to grill this Easter Sunday.
On sunny days, It is hard to be outside with a baby when you haven't packed a parasol. But one of the Fox features I love the most is that you can use the stroller seat as a regular seat. So, Otis was protected with the canopy and enjoyed the time with us in the sun. With milk instead of Juice, of course.
It was so relaxing to hear the water of the creek behind us with laying down eating muffins in the sun. Being all alone in such a beautiful place. That typically is filled with tourists and locals.
After our picnic, we went around the premises walking form their restaurant and zoo towards their Inn. We couldn't use their awesome playground because of the quarantine rules, but looking at the animals and getting some fresh air was just what we needed!
We hope soon they will be open again and we can come and eat here and play with the animals and jump through the playground. Until then, we can buy trout and dream of better times.
Back to Bugaboo and our Fox. It was the best match for this small day trip. It was comfortable through the forest, practical for a picnic, little enough for my car, comfy for Otis nap, and it gave enough shade. Pepa had some rest on her board, and as it is so easy to steer, I was not exhausted at the end of the day... Yes! We love our Fox!
