Tales from the River – Wertheim, Germany, Oct 4, 2011

The village across the Main River

Swans and Mallards

Our tour guide Marie-Noelle. She was a hoot!

A wealthy family had 4 floors and slate siding.

All homes are staggered. This is Market Square.

The town water well

If you didn’t like your neighbor, you put a face on your home facing that neighbor’s home.  This one is sticking his tongue out at the other house.

This is not a castle; it is a fortress. Castles are for living and partying; fortresses are for protecting the town.

I just had to stop for ice cream and a Coca-Cola. Ice cream will never be the same in the U.S.

  3. The ice cream WAS yummy! And our weather is now changing. 50 degrees F tomorrow and rainy. BUT we have umbrellas that the ship supplied and I have a raincoat. Nuremburg, here we come!
