A River Walk

This morning, I walked for twelve miles through Heidelberg and along the river front. In November, I'm walking a marathon with several friends, and we're starting to extend our mileage.


Here's a sample of scenery along the Neckar River. The swans may look placid and graceful, but believe me, you don't want to get these birds angry, or the wrath of all bird-dom will fly upon you!

Yay Laurie! From one marathon walker to another: You go, girl! Twelve miles is a long way. I'm rather envious, though; the scenery where you go walking is so gorgeous!

Ohhhh...beautiful (& maybe I'll get to see it soon!)

Good for you. The river is gorgeous. It is really worthwhile to enlarge the photo. The swan is protecting her cygnets no doubt.

Ginger,
You walk the marathon this coming weekend, right?? I'll be virtually cheering you on. And I'm envious you'll be in Portland, my old home!

Angela,
When you come down to Heidelberg, maybe we could meet by the riverfront for a snack after work?

Ruth,
I'll bet you''re right about the swan. I just made sure not to get my toes within nipping distance!
