Well it does say “stop” on the sign, do I did, bought some lunch and ate it by this bell. Couldn’t understand the inscription but I’m thinking they (there is another one of the other side of the road) are from a long destroyed church. Lots of religious imagery on the side. The one you can see here has a large crack in it so it might have sounded a bit flat…
This morning I headed east to begin with and rejoined the Rhine Cycleroute. That was relatively straight forward and I’ve been following it ever since, on and off. The sun is beautiful after so many days of average weather and the scenery becomes more and more stunning as I head further south especially on the German side of the river (still unseen) where the hills have definitely become mountains.
In the last few kilometres, the industrial mite of Germany has begun to rear its head. And it’s not an ugly one from this distance; mirroring the landscape behind it, it actually adds to the drama of the view rather than detracting from it. I might have a different opinion of course if I were cycling on that side of the Rhine (if it exists that is….). This afternoon I continue south to Switzerland.
P.S. A quick hello to Sian and Alexa who have just this minute texted me! Leave a comment here for the World to read 🙂
