My little family was in the right place at the right time when our new
home came up for rent, just as we started looking for a house in Germany.
A lovely house in a great location, close to school, work,
Frankfurt...and it's on the edge of a beautiful forest!
I love walking our dog through the forest every day, the air so fresh my
Shanghai friends would be gasping for more.
I was a little worried, when I kept spotting these 'wild boar' signs on my first venture into the forest.
I imagined the signs were to warn of nearby wild boar.
We have had one run in front of our car,
so I know they are in the forest!
Through the lovely winding track we walked,
signs warning of imminent wild boar sightings.
The dog stayed on his lead.
Every hundred meters or so there was a sign.
There must be quite a few wild boar in this area, I thought!
I hoped the owner of this glove didn't meet up with an angry swine.
I then came across this sign, the rectangular symbol, I know it from a walking track pamphlet,
is a symbol for a walk that starts in Hofheim!
The penny dropped, the 'Wild Boar'
signs are a walking track...not warning signs!!!
Feeling rather silly, but now confident I wasn't about to encounter a
big, hairy pig with tusks.
I could enjoy my walk and breathe in all the sweet,
fresh air without fear.
These were the only boar that we have had a brush with in the forest
and that is fine with me!
