Mum-Poc Visit Part III

Last Leg Standing




"The time has come," the walrus said, "to talk of other things. Of shoes and ships and ceiling wax, of cabbages and kings."
It was depressing as a child to see the walrus having devoured those innocently cute oysters. They were lured away never to see their mother/grandma again! What tragedy in childrens' films. I suppose you have to learn it sometime.

My new favorite way of sightseeing: boat cruise!


City of Konstanz, Germany


Our boat trip: Kreuzlingen, CH on the Bodensee (Lake Constance),
into the Rhein River to Schaffhausen, CH.
I just spent 10+ minutes looking for a map, but got nothing.


Windy & cold on deck!


Sitting in the warm, drinking tea, watching the scenery go by.


Just to clarify once more, it was windy and cold.
Cyril seems to be loving it.


Erin "Lazy Eye" Stodola, hello.


Nature, hello.


The bridge went flying over our heads.


Deserted streets of Schaffhausen.
Switzerland was playing that day...


This way to...


WATERFALL


The Rheinfall.


You don't want to go rafting here.




Patience pays off.
We waited 15 hours for another group to get out of our shot,
and in the end they offered to take a picture.


It was mighty powerful and mighty misty.


My girls.
I was crouching, that's why I look like the shortest one...
(PS, who looks like who?)


Well my little oysters, the time has come to get grillin'! There will be no oysters involved in this meal, you can be sure of that.
Till next time, find the person on the bus with a smile on his face for no apparent reason and realise you should be doing the same.
