A day out in Radolfzell with L. We looked around the produce market and saw all sorts of strange vegetables including the weirdest looking cross between a broccoli and a cauliflower off which the stall holder was kind enough to cut a piece for us to taste. We bought some. It looked like a mace or a spiked mine.
I dropped off a roll of my film in a photographers.
We walked under the railway to the lake shore and showed L our town of Moos across the lake. We noticed on the rocky shore some piles of stones balancing apparently without cement. And they were. The locals created their works of art on the shore and left them standing until nature took over and blew them down
We went back to the house and then to the sailing club for lunch. A goulash type of dish with salad beforehand as usual. I had a banana split after in which I was helped out by L. We were entertained by boat owners lifting their vessels out of the water by means of a crane and sling. They were very skilful at maneuvering those large keeled boats out of the water onto their trailers. The dinghies had to be pulled out by a winch attached on the landward side to a ring buried in the concrete ramp and only then attached to their car. They are not allowed to reverse the cars down the ramp. Maybe they have had too many accidents!
After lunch the girls went shopping and I walked back to the house.
Earlier that day we were surprised see some drays go by the front door pulled by teams of four horses and filled with people on benches in the back. To this day I have no idea from whence they came or where they went.
