It's a Real Nice Day here in Baden-Württemberg, perfect weather for a brewery visit. All went well, until I misunderstood the train conductor's voice on the loudspeaker; I got off the train at Herbertingen Ort, when I should have stayed on for one more stop, the Herbertingen station. So I missed the bus to Hundersingen and ended up walking there instead. One hour later, and a hundred feet higher in altitude — Mohrhalde is quite a steep alley! — I arrived at Brauereigasthof Adler, mightily thirsty.

The Katamaran was running an hour behind schedule, so I wandered around Friedrichshafen for a while, stopping at Pier 40 for a misleadingly-named Meckatzer Weiss-Gold. And the 55-minute journey across the Bodensee was plenty of time to enjoy a Leibinger Edel-Pils on the boat.

The only thing that really went wrong today: I seem to have caught a whopping great cold this afternoon. This is unfortunate, because tomorrow will be the first time all week that Paris and I will be able to spend all day together, and we have some friends visiting from Hessen. We'll see how this goes.
