Our very first day and we filled it to the brim!
The temps are just below freezing during the day, but the sun was trying hard to make itself known and be seen and the sky was mostly blue which just brightens everything up so much!
This was the view from my seat in Aby’s car! We drove to the train station and parked, and took the train into Stuttgart to do a bit of exploring. It’s a very nice city with interesting shops and things to see and do!
Town scenes from the train. You can SEE that the sun is trying to come out…but it was cold, just hovering above or below freezing.
There was a valley below hat you can’t quite see, but the roadside nature is beautiful , and is what it looked like today as our train flew past!
At the station, there are shops and vendors and all kinds of things to look at. Of course the ones that catch my eye are the baked goods! OH MY! Look what this cookie vendor had:
Aren’t these fun? If someone gave me one with a message on it, I’d have a hard time eating it…well…maybe for a day…
The next thing we did was go up in to the tower at the train station and out onto the roof where we could look at al the surrounding lands! There is chain link fencing, so all my pics are taken by sticking the lense of my camera through the wire!
Stuttgart is the home of Mercedes..and right there on top fo the tower is the spinning logo…had to get a pic of that!
and these pics were taken all around the rooftop to give you an idea of the city
Though it is Winterscenes, you can see where there are places for vinyards on the side of the hills. We had a great time wandering the market places and saw lots of flower vendors, fruit and vegtable stands, and some others….
the pics of those are on my PHONE and I don’t have time to edit them down right now…I’m off to bed…it’s a quarter past midnight and my body clock is struggling
More next time!
