It's Friday evening already, so that means the weekend
has begun - have a good one!
Today is the last day of the Birds, beasts and humans challenge at Art Journey Journal, and it was a great month. If you follow the link on my side bar you can see all of the lovely entries. Today I have put together a collage of all of my entries, a month full of colour and fun. Come back tomorrow to see where your next flight of fantasy will take you!
I have often showed photos of this row of benches, where I
like to sit, weather permitting.
Recently I showed this photo of the same path, a few yards further on, and Chrissie said she was pleased to see what was round the bend...
So I decided to show a bit more, although I am sure I have shown similar photos before, but not together to show the 'lay of the land'.
On the left you can see the jetty, where the white boats stop in summer, and exactly opposite, on the right of the photo, is the main street.
The jetty is mostly used from the gulls....
Here you can see the entrance to the Market Street on the right.
There is a market held there every Wednesday, directly at the Rhine
When you continue on the towpath this bronze relief is on the wall at the corner of the Market Street, showing what it used to be like
This is a few steps further along the old walls
The old mill lost it's top many years ago, and is now a private house.
Here I am standing on the same spot, just looking back to the jetty. In the distance you can see the bridge over the Rhine very faintly.
The old fortification walls all have different names
These old steps, leading to nowhere, are under the mill. In the 19th and early 20th century the steps led to a room on the right where patients from the Florence Nightingale Hospital could change into their bathing clothes before being led to a bathing spot on the Rhine! The stairs are made of window ledges and lintels from the castle ruins.
Just past the stairs the path divides.The path on the left leads along the Rhine to the next little village, and on the right it leads round the old town.
These two made themselves comfortable at home again.
And Lilly. Both photos were taken by my neighbour Gabi.
That's all for today!
Have a good day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
