Pottenstein

Reality has set in that we won't always be here; we have less than three months left. So everywhere we've gone this weekend, I've been sure to get plenty of pictures. On Friday night, we went to one of our favorite restaurants, which we've always known as "Steak on a Stone." We've gotten to try some (what we call) exotic food - kangaroo, bison, and ostrich. But we never worked up the nerve to try the crocodile.

The drive to Pottenstein is always breathtaking, but this is the first time I've attempted to capture the beauty on my camera (please excuse my lack of photographic abilities):










And here is Scout, enjoying his favorite German beverage - Hefewiezen:

We got the croc once. It was...weird. It had the consistency of pork but a distinct fishy taste. The first few bites were OK, but then it just got old.

Those are good photos!

I loved "Steak on a Stone" or "Steak on a Rock" or whatever everyone preferred to call it ;) I never got the courage to try the Kangaroo...I know how much everyone who tried it loves to tell everyone, "I once at Kangaroo"...too funny :)

Awww man! We were just talking about this place this weekend and how much we missed it. My stomach is growling now. LOL!

Thanks for the memory!

Sarah took me there for dinner on one of my visits to Vilseck, but it was at night so I didn't get to see the beautiful countryside. Thanks for the gorgeous pictures!
Love the yarn and the beginning of the sock!

Bison and ostrich are both virtually staples in my house, and I've tried both kangaroo and yak at a local restaurant. Given the choice, avoid the yak. Croc I've never tried, but I've had gator. It really did sort of taste like chicken.

Wow...I'm with the brigade moving to Vilseck (the movers are doing their thing as I write this) and I am SO excited to be going to such a beautiful place. I hope we enjoy it as much as you seem to!
