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.

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...
