Bodensee you, but you can't Bodensee me! hiding in plain sight, another sunset!

A beautiful summer day, some sun, some clouds high in the mid 70's


This was the first "money shot" from yesterday, I went over to Hodingen, which is very close.

After lunch I went down the hill & North-West along the lake....














I went a good distance, but it was flat.















I went to Sipplingen, There were crowds on the beach. This was taken from a pedestrian overpass.

This is the walk back up the hill to Schloss Spetzgarten, it was getting dark, so the photo is blurry, but you get the idea.

These are from yesterday, three done. I'm not feeling as productive as I could, but getting around is time consuming and exhausting, I've been hoping for rain, so I can rest, and it's raining this morning!
