The Black Forest on our way to Austria

This is the first main stop on the second day, so far we have travelled through part of France  and into the black forest area of Germany,  This beautiful clock was outside the shop I have several pictures for you at different angles so you can see the whole clock and I might add that it plays a tune and the figures go around, sorry I don't have a video.  This is the House of the black forest clocks.

 This is a little house where she and he move in and out,  usually they have these house so you can tell the weather,  ifs its fine she will come out and if its going to rain he comes out.

 This is the wall inside the shop with all the cuckoo clocks,  they were expensive,  I just wish we had room for a cuckoo clock,   If you would like further information they have a web site which is www.house-of-black-forest-clocks.com.
If you do go and visit do stop and have a piece of their black forest cake,  its to die for,  and I loved it.  Before the coach left the owner came on board and gave us the proper recipe for black forest cake.

Now for our next stop at Lake Constance,   the lake on the River Rhine at the northern foot of the Alps, this is the third largest central European lake which is between three countries  Switzerland over the far side of the picture above,  Austria,   and Germany where these pictures were taken,   If you go on the lake you need to take your passport as you will need it when you go over the other side.

 This church is the Barnau Cathedral near Maurach on the lake side and I cant remember where we were,  we did not go in the church as there was a christening going on,

Here is my husband Vernon standing with the lake behind him  and below yes he did manage to get a picture of me standing with the lake behind me.

Well thats day two as we journey onto to Austria,  so yes there is more to come,  Hope you enjoyed this quick post of our holiday.
