Tübingen

The Rathaus

Puppet Store

This darling canal ran through the city. There were tiny bridges that crossed it to the stores.

Look at the painting on the building in the center!

Gondolas on the Neckar River

Rachel is in much better shape than I for climbing these coblestone hills.

Today Rachel drove me to Tubingen which is a Swabian university town about 20 miles from Stuttgart. It was fortunate to have been saved from any bombings during the war, leaving wonderful cobblestone streets, charming buildings, and beautiful churches.

We wandered around the town central and went into some interesting stores. In one I bought a small carved goose and a carved tree. I also bought a small porcelain church which resembles the architecture there.
We were blessed with a gorgeous day - partly cloudy skies - and temps in the low 70's. What a treat. And speaking of treats, we stopped in a restaurant where I ordered a piece of delicious raspberry cheesecake and a Coca Cola.

So glad you are having fun and being able to be with Hans, Rachel and the beautiful Grandkids.

We are all enjoying the pictures and blogs.
