Hallo Suzie!

Vielen Dank für Deine schöne Postkarte aus Cornwall. Mutti, Paul und ich fahren zu unserer Oma in Schwerin. Wir fahren morgen mit der Bahn dahin. Unser Kaninchen fährt aber nicht mit und Papa bleibt zu Hause, denn er muss arbeiten. Paul nimmt seine Gitarre mit, die er zu Ostern gekauft hat, aber er kann noch nicht gut spielen! In Schwerin fahren wir gerne Rad. Am Wochenende fahren wir nach Warnemünde. Das liegt an der Küste nicht weit von Rostock. Das macht immer Spaß.

Liebe Grüße!

Deine Hanna
