Sadly the downside of pushing yourself when you have joint issues is your buggered the next day.

Loving your travel diary Sandra. Cheers me up when I'm pushing myself to get cleared out. It's such a tedious job but I'm making progress and determined to complete it before I give up. No point postponing the inevitable!

Yep the downside of age and joints

The upside we can take as long as we like

Tomorrow we will set forth on a mile , what happened to twenty miles a day up and over mountains ??

A boat ride around Strasbourg , 13 each for an hour and 10 minutes, no walking

And again to familiarise to the lace work on the cathedral

Shadow will have aircon

Can you believe it air con in Oct?

Weve needed it today in the van

Fortunately Albert finds no problem on the bike and he and the hound have done an easy 3 miles today

Im so hoping a tricycle will give me the same ease

I just can no longer balance a bike and step over it , and Im afraid of falling off on rubbish joints

Its hard to explain but my leg wont lift that far

Sometimes getting into the van is a work of art

And even at home I need to flick ourwards to get up simple steps in the house

Im not in so much pain love

just knackered joints

You have much to come to terms with

A different pain I guess

But you will sort it

You are one strong woman

Missed you this year

Although we are the same age

Your like the mum I never knew

With the support and wisdom

And Young Albert gives you the thumbs up

He gives no one the thumbs up

64 of teenage angst

But this gentle giant much like shadow, will go far

Day in Strasbourg

One mile along the Rhine to the tram to Strasbourg, a beautiful walk with barges and moored cruise ships

The cathedral is magnificent

The boat tour Im not sure Id recommend , very little chance of a window seat and the glass distorts the vision, the boat is low down although navigating the locks was interesting

There is a petite train and Id be inclined to do that first then decide if you want to do the boat

A very very long mile back at the end of the day

A few pictures of the cathedral, the beautiful rose window , a few other buildings and a family of buskers,
Guess those kids should be in school, but the little one was playing what looked to be a wooden pallet box and playing it well too

Probably a beatbox the lad is sitting on Sandra. They give off quite a good sound.

They gave out a good sound

Took me back to Israel

When our son sold cokes

More to the tourists

And the ones he worked for didnt even know he wasnt Arab

His actions and mannerisms were perfect

We once had to take him to a doctor

He said when did you adopt him

This child is an Arab

Yeah just think how bad his life would have been if he really had been an Arab

Peter and Carmel

Spooky travelled with us for 5 years and over 20,000 miles.He died aged 11 and is buried in Delphi in Greece.
Now that's a great age and a great adventure for a rabbit and I think he deserves a mention.

The best things in Life...........................are not Things !!

Life is really, really great ...........sometimes it's a bit sh*t............and then you die !!
