And this week's festivities....Auer Dult!

We were early so the place was pretty empty

Later, it wasn't this empty, of course

The Auer Dult was originally a "crockery market".  It began in 1310

Yes, it is also a fest

Have you ever seen such a huge pretzel??!!

The purpose of our visit was the fish-on-a-stick.  This is
pink Salmon.  I forgot to take a picture of it before
we started eating!!

Sonya and Susan....this is for you!!

Mom....this is for you! aren't forgotten!  This is for you!!

Cleaning the Sylvanstein Reservoir - visited on December 10, 2015

The Sylvensteinsee is embedded in the Karwendel Alps

Stretching across the beautiful Isar River valley in Bavaria, Germany,
 the Sylvenstein Dam protects the capital city of Munich
 and the town of Bad Tölz from devastating floods.

For comparison, this photo is from April 2009 and is a similar
view of the photo above
When the Sylvensteinsee was built (1954-59),
the old village Fall sunk in the lake reservoir. 

The reservoir is emptied for cleaning once every 15 years

For comparison, this was taken in April 2009.  Most of the pictures
above were taken from under the bridge on the right
