Hard to leave this precious little town - last pic's attached.

And then we drove, and we drove, and we drove - good ol' Ricardo wanted to drive it (we should have done a distance check ah well....we made it ...my navigating ensured we didn't put on ANY extra miles. 

Arrived @ Rothenburg about 4 pm to just a gorgeous boutique hotel with wonderful service and help.  As Rich said, it made half the day of pretty intense driving (130 kph with huge trucks everywhere and sometimes rain) disappear really quickly.  Strolled about, popped into a few shops.
Walked into the Kathe Wohlfahrt shop and it was as if 25 years had dropped away and I was back deliberating on which precious "whirley gig" I should purchase as our Christmas treasure...Ate at a typical Franconian restaurant called "Zur Holl" (The Hell) which is somewhat appropriate as Rich had just finished a call to our lawyer John - cannot believe Oxbow's actions/non-actions!!  They had not given her anything about the termination or the letter itself - all bodes well for us in court - her comment "oh the Canadian judges out here are going to love this story!!"
 ...more beer , more beer!!  LOVE this German lighter beer!!  The Hell was just fantastic, forget dieting....fabulous white asparagus soup, great sausages and sauerkraut!!  followed by chocolate crepes and ice cream...oh I'm going pay for it (or Rich - heh) but man it was great!! 
Plotting Christmas "tradition" gifts and perhaps a cuckoo-clock for Whistler - just playful and fun.

Relaxing day tomorrow just strolling and walking the wall around Rothenburg and doing a bit of shopping.  Tonite and one more then it's Budapest and the Barkers!!
