Max, Mark and I spent a lovely long weekend on the lake. On Saturday we went to the Pile Dwellings in Unteruhldingen and walked around Meersburg.
On Sunday we took the ferry over to Konstanz to Sea Life. Not much else was open other than eating places as it was Sunday. We also played a challenging game of mini golf.
On Monday we went to the Island of Mainau and walked among the beautiful flowers. Max met a few kids we think from France and had a great time playing at the playground.
On Tuesday we toured the tiny Zeppelin museum and walked a bit more around the town before we headed home. Did you know that Count Zeppelin was born in Konstanz?

We got to spend the day up at Wintergreen Resort. We took lessons for the beginners that we are. Max took ski lessons. The rest of us took snow boards. Mark took a bad fall before the lesson and another one half way through. That ended his snow board quest for the day. Heather did ok. She had to chase after Max before the lesson because he took off down the hill without any of us. Heather took a very hard hit right at the end that even left a visible bruise. Kaitlyn did fine but her muscles were sore. Linda did well and suffered no soreness.
Setting aside the bruises and sore muscles, it was a great family day.
We had a great dinner with Roz last night in London. Ate at a place called Camino. Food was tasty even though we didn’t understand what we were ordering. The conversation was great.
Roz, thanks for your inspiration and best wishes on your new career!
This is a nice city. Definitely different than London. I’m not able to sense the romance that you always read about, unfortunately. Would like to come and visit again.
