THE REAL WEDNESDAY JULY 20th

Av EvaLena Hallgren - 20 juli 2016 21:22

Wow, are we messed up ? TODAY is the real Wednesday, so we gained a day we didn't know we had, and what a day it has been

This is the last picture for the night, last night

 

 



Is it possible that the moon really is made of cheese ?

 

 

 

We were up early again because Mom wanted to get an early start of the bike ride  into Heidelberg

before it got too hot, so we locked up Lucy at 8 am and went on our way.

 

 

the ride was pretty but very very hot, it was 95 F (34C)and absolutely no wind, but it was in the plan soooo ???? no chicken out now.I guess I can't really complain since I was only being a lookout, Mom did the pedaling............

Pedaling along we all of sudden came upon this surprise, good thing there was a thick glass between us

 

   

nice cuddly teddy bear

 

 

 

The last part of the bike trail was right next to the river Neckar, which flows into the Rhine a few miles north west. and it was beautiful, so gorgeous I was afraid Mom would start to yodel (she has practiced in Lucy while driving, you know,but Mom says it's just lalalala to wake her up when road gets monotone)

     

 

Heidelberg is a very popular tourist town and this picture of the entrance is a given

 

    when we got over the bridge there was a crowd taking pictures of the bridge mandrill. Mom waited her turn when all of a sudden I became the attraction, and I didn't mind one bit

   


I did a good job getting people to focus on me so Mom could get the shot

 

 

 

American culture has found it's way here too, 

 

 

 

and Cuban cigars 

 

 

 

Mom really wanted to buy one of these clocks, but the price and the shipping prevented her..........it doesn't fit into our decor anywhere anyway I say, and Mom had to agree on that

 

 

The town wasn't crowded this time of day so we did some exploring, and visited the Tourist office, (and yes they spoke English and were helpful) Later in the day this square was filled with people, several groups, where the leader walks in front of the group waving a flag so the group follows. Does not look like fun.

     

On the church step was a man who introduced himself as a pilgrim, and he spoke flawless English. As a matter of fact, he recited a poem he had written (he said) that was real nice. That cost mom a Euro 

     

 

There's a lot more to this town, but it's getting late and it has cooled down so I can get my evening walk.

I'll finish this story tomorrow.............good night.

Hey: Love these pictures, Germany is such a beautiful place. Were those tomatoes that were all over the ground and on those bushes? Love the cukoo clocks. Glad you both are having such a great time. Hugs and Kisses to you both. Me and Jim and the furries.

Yesterday was not a fun day, it was hotter than hell, and Mom kept on driving south because she wanted to get closer to Rome, which we are going to today. If this campsite was nicer we would have stayed another night, but the toilets !!!!!!! No paper...

Today has been a rough day for both of us, I didn't sleep well again because the Thunder returned and they way it feels right now it may return again tonight.  It's 90 degrees and no breeze so Mom had the brilliant idea to take the bus in early and...

Last night we didn't find a campsite so we pulled over and slept at a parking space by a ski chalet. So did several others, so we felt safe. The view all around us was magnificent.   I had a visitor who came to see me, her name was Lilly (made m...

After lots of disappointments due to wrong information about buses at the Garmisch RVsite, we got up real early and drove to Partenkirchen, and parked at a bakery where Mom bought the most delicious bread ever. Germans may not know how to prepare a h...
