On the Bodensee

Yesterday was the Ascension Day holiday here. It was grey and chilly and my Sweetie is away on business so I took a scenic drive with Starr and Holgar to Lindau on the German side of Lake Bodensee. Lindau is another charming medieval town on an island with fountains, a lighthouse, chestnut trees and a spectacular Rathaus. It also has a gelateria where we indulged and it did not disappoint! I had a scoop of apricot and a scoop of chocolate with chilis which was terrific but Starr’s orange/mango was even better! We spotted a hat store with a Borsalino fino fino fedora priced at 898 Euros (that’s over $1,000!). I should have snapped a picture but had a momentary lapse - perhaps shock! I loved this marionette advertising the Marionettenoper season. For more pix see http://www.lindauer-mt.de/ . Think I should take my hubby back in June for Die Fledermaus or Die Zauberflöte. K Q:-)
