I should love to see that some day.

Lovely Brian, I am a bit of a nut when it comes to old buildings and a special love for the castles of old. Very nice work on the caravans and the castles peeking out above the trees.

I am truly enjoying my travels with you... best to keep that between us then, eh?  ;)
Cheers, Val

You are most welcome to ride along Val!
By the way if you get stuck for internet and the monthly challenge again I'd be glad to help. As long as I have an internet connection that is!

Thanks so much Brian. I had thought to try using my poor old not so smart phone.... but can't see the screen to see what it's doing! Wonder if they'll ever figure out one in braille?       
Cheers, Val

... while she was doing the laundry.  Did I get this right?   So next week, you will be doing the laundry and she will be sightseeing, correct?  :1hug:

Ah!  La Moselle...  :cloud9:  Which castle is in your painting?

Sorry, I was dreaming... nice paintings  :clap:
Cheers, Annie

Sorry Anne, we've been struggling with internet connections.

No problem. I thought you were struggling with the laundry machine  :2funny:

Thanks for the link.  I have seen many of those castles, also along La Loire, in the 70's, but not the Bischofstein.  I just read its story, very interesting.  The prisonners should had a nice view from those donjon towers, if they could reach the tinny windows.  On the othe hand it must have been damp and cold most of the year.
Cheers, Annie

The campground in Boningen near Interlaken Switzerland.
I completely failed to get any depth into this sketch! The houses in the background where across a river up the side of the mountain. Still, got to try it!

Brian,

Your travel sketches are so enjoyable to look at.  They are not meant to be perfect; they are just quick memory keepers!

Looks like you will have lots of stories to tell when you return.

Have fun and safe travels.
