Tuesday

We still had one day that was unplanned and it ended up being today. They were reporting an 80% chance of rain and possible thunderstorms, so we did not really want to ride a lot of miles unless it improved. I don't mind riding in the rain, but no reason to subject yourself to a possible human lightning rod if you don't have too. Of course the same scientists that say the world's temperature will rise one degree the next century because of global warming, can't acurately predict the next 24 hour weather very well

After hanging around the hotel and finishing off some more expresso, we noticed the sky started to clear up. We never did get rain that day but just decided to ride over towards lake Bodensee and check out that area, eat lunch and return early.



In the small towns, they sometimes put statues and other artwork in the round abouts.



I bet you didn't see this one coming











Still impressed with how clean everything was in this country. Not a lot of photos on this short day and glad we rode over that direction to see ths small towns. Back down south the next three days towards the passes & Andermatt.
