The picture above is the village of Lupburg, our home away from home while in Bavaria. Our house is on the right, below the onion dome church . The people are friendly, helpful and best of all, love to keep things "in order."

Simple Sunday afternoon

This morning we attended services at Nienhof Chapel on Hohenfels military post.  Tim delivered a great sermon and then we drove over to the Warrior's Dining Facility to enjoy a feast fit for a German warrior.  Any day of the week, family members are welcome to eat at the facility but on Sundays, they have the famous "Sunday brunch." Lilly thought the word "brunch"was clever..."it's breakfast and lunch put together, that's awesome!" The meal was satisfying and included roast beef, chinese egg rolls, french toast and omelettes at a great price for our family of 6.

Our goal for today's walk...Eggenthal

Bridge closed...but we knew we could cross it

Germans have a unique sense of style. Many people paint parts of their homes in vivid colors including this Barn Red on a side of the home

After every turn, a new view

Bavaria is largely Roman Catholic and many people great each other with "Gross ist Gott", God is Great. Icons like the one above are found throughout our village

Yes, Tim is breaking the rules

The mill house with its fabulous flower display

Tim contemplates our future bike trip to Regensburg

Once we returned home, Tim and I took our dog Lady on a pleasant Sunday walk.  Today's route: the 4 km loop from home through the village of Eggenthal.  Sundays are quiet in the village and we walked quickly under cool grey skies.  The path we followed is part of the Jura bike route stringing walking paths and small roads throughout the region to offer walkers and cyclists a variety of excursions.  Some day we might make the trip to Regensburg by bike...of course at 46km one way, we'll probably bike there and take the train back home.
