On Saturday, September 19th, we decided to leave Karlsruhe and go for a long drive. That drive took us over into Strasbourg, France; south from there to Basel, Switzerland; east to Zurich, Switzerland; north through the Black Forest to Stuttgardt; and northwest back to Karlsruhe. In all we were gone only about 8 eight hours. What a great little "day trip."
While in France, we stopped at a rest area. We were able to get one of our very favorite French treats which we've had many times in the past on trips to France: (dark) chocolate-filled croissants! Oh, my......just too wonderful for words!
The rest area in the French coutryside also had a huge, beautifully designed vegetable garden and lots of flowers. I found a very busy bee frantically drinking nectar from a delicate white rose blossom.
