Wednesday around Ulm

Rob discovered a park with a pirates’ ship, a rope course, and a river near his office. After we dropped him off at work, we played there for a while, with a detour to a toy store. Spencer got a soccer ball and Meg got some art stuff.
We played until lunchtime, when Rob joined us to go to the Ulm minster to climb the tower. The staircases were narrow and had frequent windows, so you could simultaneously enjoy claustrophobia and a fear of heights, if you are in to that sort of thing. Meg and Clare stopped after a chapel at a midway point and went back down to enjoy the stunning interior and listen to the pipe organ. We did get high enough to look down on the 8 bells and a chapel high above the rest of the city. Rob will post views from the top of the tallest church tower in the world later.
I found the restoration efforts quite fascinating. I wonder what we are working on now that will attract attention in 650 years or if there is anything started now that someone will come back and finish 500 years from now.
