Meersburg was a fantastic day trip from Konstanz. It had been snowing in Ottawa when we left early April and seeing Spring in full bloom in Meersburg was a welcome sight. Tulips were bursting with colour, trees were blossoming pink and planter boxes were full. It would be another month at least until Ottawa's tulips graced us with their presence. It was a great time to be exploring another part of the world. We walked along the lakeside path from Konstanz to the ferry port. We easily caught the ferry headed across a narrow part of the lake to Meersburg and spent the entire day aimlessly wandering the winding streets, admiring the castle's lofty location and ancient grandeur, snapping countless pictures of the very photogenic squares and houses and picnicking on fresh bread and cheese. Yet another place on the lake where gorgeous Spring afternoons seem to slip away.
