Yesterday I went for a walk down to the Rhine, and was busy looking for signs of spring, but didn't find many! Next week it is supposed to be getting warmer, so I hope that will make a difference. Here are some of the photos I took along the way:
Here the ducks all looked very agitated, swimming around on the little stream next to our house. Perhaps they were having spring feelings?
Then I walked along the Rhine, past the castle ruins.
When the sun came out the Rhine looked really blue and sparkly, but when it clouded over the water turned grey again.
The next two pictures are of two of my fave corners in the Church Close:
After I had had a cappuccino and a croissant in *Café Schuster* for breakfast, I started back home. I like this picture of the Castle taken against the light.
Thie is the window to what was probably the dungeons in the castle, wouldn't like to live down there!
Then I walked along the shore. This is the spot where the *Kittelbach*, the little stream where the ducks were, flows into the Rhine.
I wonder whose big feet are standing in the water?
Here the ferry across to the other Rhine side is just setting off:
And here you can see the buds on a tree starting to get fat - looks like spring will soon be here!
I very much enjoyed my walk, and after I had had a rest and a coffee at home, I moved my living room round, cleaned, hoovered etc, and it looks a lot better. Tomorrow I will have a go at my bedroom!
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks for visiting!
