We don’t normally move in the late afternoon, but the stellplatz in Friedrichshafen was a little noisy last night and its not far to Ravensburg. The other minor issue is LPG, one gas cylinder was emptied more than a week ago now and as it’s very cold at night we have the heater on every night till bed time. If by some chance we were to run out of gas overnight, it may become ugly in the morning.
Anyway we find an auto gas station on our way and fill up (34L @ €.49PL). On our way again through the numerous little villages and kilometres of apple trees. Apples are the big local crop around Lake Constance as are grapes for white wines. I am familiar with apple trees from up around Bilpin west of Sydney, but the German apples trees look more like a shrub as they grown up a wire trestle. Set along wire fences, they are grown like grape vines along the fence.
The stellplatz is easy to find and we roll into a vacant spot a hook-up before its starts getting dark…
Just a quick observation regarding Germany, its common to see men sitting in cafes having a beer at 10 am and woman having a coffee. However by mid-day both men and woman are sitting in cafes having ice-cream even on a cold day !
