Rothenburg

Rothenburg Backyard Garden... Click for larger image



We had a day without much rain -- none that caught us while we were outside.  I call that a success.  This part of Europe is in the beginning of Spring, so their Forsythia is still in bloom and their daffodils are too.  Their gardens are beautiful.



On the bus ride from the boat to Rothenburg, I discovered that I had left my camera open and the battery had run down!  Idiot!!!

Rothenburg is a mideval city with an old wall going almost entirely around the city center.  We walked on part of the wall and enjoyed looking into people's back yards.



From one point on the wall we could see the Tauber river valley, which was beautiful.



Of course, there was shopping :-)



Rothenburg Children's Band... Click for larger image Rothenburg Listening and Waiting for the bus...

Now we are back on board and dinner will be served soon -- yet another meal in a long line of good meals.



Cheers, Diane
