I love ruins.....

and we have enough around here... yet I'm always finding new ones.

Yesterday morning I had that work related class to teach. The class took place at a town on the Neckar River, near the famous Heidelberg. Anyway, after class (which once again went very well), I noticed on my drive along the river a fortress ruin I had never noticed before, probably since the trees in front of it have no leaves at the moment. I decided to stop and take a closer look... I love ruins!

As you can see there is still snow on the ground and part of the paths were icy... but I walked up to it anyway.

This is a view of the road along the Neckar River that leads to and passes through Heidelberg....

After I dropped the business car off, I then drove to Regina's where I spent the afternoon and evening. I was quite tired when I arrived home, in fact I slept until 08:00 am this morning! So today a lazy day was planned, but I actually got lots of stuff done, too.

Time now to get to bed ... this week will probably be another busy one *sigh*



  1. I love snooping around ruins too. Great pics!

  2. Makes for great photo opportunities. Interesting finds.

  3. according to my info, this fortress was first built in 1172! Now THAT is old!

  4. Very cool! You don't find ruins like that here in the USA, unfortunately.
