Last day of March and I thought I was getting a last chance for the Kodachrome challenge – but no, the challenge will continue through April.
All of a sudden we are having heavenly weather, sun and temperatures in the 60’s and 70’s. It feels so good.
Here are some Easter themed pictures from our ride yesterday, which due to the cycle-friendly weather took us a bit farther from home than we had been riding in the past months.
Festively decorating the village well or fountain is a custom in small towns or villages in parts of Bavaria during Easter. According to oral tradition, the first Easter fountain was decorated in 1908 somewhere near Nuremberg. The custom is very common in Franconia where we have cycled a few times around Easter and could admire the beautifully decorated fountains. However, I had never before seen this style of Easter decoration here where we are. This was a first and not quite as elaborate as in the villages in Franconia but still lovely.
