Nurnberg, Germany

In between the trip to Cologne and the one to Bruges, we all went to Nurnberg for the day on Saturday.  They had a festival there, but I don't even remember what they were celebrating this time.  It is about a 3 hour drive, and so we were hungry for lunch by the time we got to the center of town.   We sat down at a bakery on the square.  Ordering some breads from the bakery and a few items from the stalls set up in the square, we pieced together a lunch.  The bathroom had a code lock on the door and you could only get in if you had a receipt from the bakery with the code.  I have never seen that before.  Germans really don't like to share their bathrooms with the public.  I have seen so many different methods from keeping the general public out.

Bob never does anything dangerous or risky because he is so cautious.  I thought it was amusing to look to my right and see him trying this balancing act.  

My cutie pants!

After being rejected by two closed cathedrals/churches and wondering around the square browsing at the stalls, we started the uphill walk to the castle.  At the beginning of the castle was this rock formation that the children got a kick out of climbing for a few minutes.

Castles are castles to me.  You can always depend on them to have a great view, a bunch of stone walls, and a steep walk to reach the castle.

Bob was asleep in the Ergo.
