TT #118

More Sightseeing

We've been making it a point to do more sightseeing in the area. These pictures (including the header) are from a recent drive to Hirschhorn, "The Pearl of the Neckar."

You can always click on the pictures to see a larger version.
1.
the castle wall and tower
2.
front of the castle--there's a cafe on the terrace. you can only go inside the cafe and the tower. the rest is inhabited.
3.
the courtyard

4.
another part of the courtyard
5.
a house built on the wall
over one of the gates
6.
the gardens

Only Carl and Camden went up the tower--as usual, it's too many steps for me.

7.
view of the courtyard from the tower
8.
the bend in the Neckar viewed from the tower

There were wonderful walking trails nearby, and it was a gorgeous day.

9.
an old stone path marker
10.
those two little dots on the trail are Carl & me.
11.
Camden

12.
It really was a gorgeous walk--the leaves contrasted with the bright green moss.
13.
My favorite picture that day--the sun shining through the trees looked golden.

These pictures are from almost a month ago. Either I'm going to have to stop taking pictures or just skip posting some. Of course, the weather is threatening to be nasty this weekend, so if I post last weekend's pictures next Thursday, I should be all caught up....

My TT is at http://paigetylertheauthor.blogspot.com
 
Amazing pictures! thanks for stopping by.
 
These are so cool! I like #3 the best. Of course tomorrow I'll probably be more in the mood for #12 or something.
 
I love taking trips and pictures on the trips...those are awesome!
 
Beautiful country side. Looks like like you had a wonderful trip. Happy TT!
 
I love it when you do this! YES!! The photos are so awesome. More than anything, I love how you push yourself out there to enjoy Germany. I don't know that I would be able to do that.

Again you inspire. (I can't believe how old Camden looks! wow! Foxy too!)
 
I love those old, german-style houses like in #5.
 
These are beautiful photos! The view from #7 and #8 must be just breathtaking in person. :)

Happy TT and thank you for stopping by!
 
Thanks, all!

Claudia--I am really proud of myself for getting to the point where I can get out and do things like this. Even 3 years ago I wouldn't have been able to.
Camden is getting pretty handsome, isn't he? He was all dressed up today because he was playing in the jazz band at school, and I almost didn't recognize him!

Carmen, you'd really love the town where my mother-in-law lives, then! Downtown is all buildings like that.
 
I love the pictures! Especially the last one. Something about the lighting in it just starts to tell a story. Would you mind if I borrowed it on my blog as the inspiration for a drabble?

What a beautiful area!

Happy TT!
 
Mary, sure, go ahead and use it--I'm glad you like it.
 
Oh wow! Love those pics! Man, I simply adore castles. Hehehe!
 
That was a fun little castle tour! Makes me want to buy a plane ticket and see more of the world. I've seen a couple of castles in Ireland at least.
 
That looks like a beautiful place. Thanks for the wonderful tour.
 
Fabulous pictures. Its always fun exploring an area. Thanks for stopping by my TT!
 
Amazing photos. Thanks for sharing them :)
 
Those towering trees in the woods - wow. And I LOVE that shot of the sun through the forest. And of course me + castles = ecstasy.
 
Yes Darla, Carmen sure does look grown up and handsome! How everything with his jazz band going? Does he enjoy it so far?

Again, as always those are fab castles you got up there. If ever family visit Germany, I try to make a stop there :) And yes, I know...it's been such a long time since I post my TTs. I get back to it eventually teehehe
