WEDNESDAY JULY 20th

Av EvaLena Hallgren - 20 juli 2016 06:29

It's early morning and today we're going on a long bike ride following the river Rhine. It'll be about 15 miles, and hopefully, Mom brings lots of water because it's 34 C- 93F..............in other words Florida heat.

We only drove for 3 hours yesterday which is a good thing when it's this hot.

 on this stretch of the road, we ended up in a lot of traffic and a lot of lane changes, so Mom had to rely on Alice in the box. She did very good

   

 

we drove past miles and miles of solar panels, and then there was a mall................guess where they got their power from ? Germans finally realized they have to figure out a way for cleaner energy. We have seen fields of panels in other places too, and lots of windmills too. 

 


 

We were told it's almost impossible to get a parking space in Heidelberg, so that's why we stopped in a town close by that's called Ladenburg. On weekends there's boat that takes you up the river, but we don't want to wait that long. 

After settled into a space here we went biking to explore this town, and it's as quaint and beautiful as the one we just left.

     

On the town square, there was a great market, vegetables, sausages, and cheeses were sold. Mom didn't buy anything even though she was tempted. In this heat it would have melted before we got back to Lucy and hr fridge.

   

 

As we always do we went to the tourist office to find brochures and facts about this area. This place had nothing in English, and the lady was rude, and didn't even make an effort to help. Guess she didn't like foreigners ? Since this is a big tourist place, Mom sent the town mayor an Email to let him know.

We stopped at a restaurant and had a marvelous burger. It had a potato pancake on top ? I tasted the meat, and it was awesome.

   

 

at the river there was a ferry to get across, wonder if it'll hold Lucy ? We are not trying 

  

 


 

 

doves are everywhere, and they don't care who they shit on......................

 


gorgeous flowers and buildings, and again these cobblestone streets that make me bounce around in my basket. I think it bothers Mom a little too, because she walks the bike a lot.

   

Again Mom got all nostalgic seeing this bike, but she thought it was a Triumph ??

 

it's now 7 am, and we're ready to start the ride before it get too hot..............................and finally please send Mom a note to let her know you're with me, or she start to think this is no use...........Thanks a bundle, Buttons.

vet ej om det är riktigt så, det kanske är lite krångligt att skriva från telefon, eftersom man måste lägga in en avsändar adress och en massa bokstäver å sånt, men det funkade ju denna gång ?

It has been an entire week since I got Mom to write for me, and that's because she claims I have nothing to tell but I beg to differ. Sure it's true we're not driving around much anymore, and we are in places we have been to many times before, so the...

We're still at the same place on the island hoping that the wind will die down, and finally this morning it looks like it has. It has been sunny all along but so windy you couldn't be outside, or we didn't really want to, so Mom has amused herself ...

Waking up at Mom's favorite place, at least I think so since this is the third time we're here. It's a marina on the most southern tip of Swedens second biggest island called Öland. This time, it was very crowded here so we didn't get our favorite sp...

Now we're back in Sweden and we ended up taking another short ferry ride (about 20 min.)from Denmark to Sweden, and this time it was Mom that was scared when she saw these waves she was thinking about getting seasick but it turned out ok. We both sta...

Yesterday we left Germany and took a short ferry ride to Denmark. On the ferry website, it said all dogs stay in the vehicle but Mom remembered how frightening that was for me and checked out how far it'll be to drive around and take the bridge to Sw...
