Intermezzo: Dackelausflug / Dachshund tour

Zum Monatsanfang waren wir mal wieder mit dem Dackelverein unterwegs. Diesmal in der Bodenseeregion.

In the first days of October, we were on tour with the dachshund club. This year our destination was the Lake Constance.

Kuno ist nicht begeistert vom Büllenfest - ein Jahrmarkt auf der Halbinsel Höri, wo eine ganz besondere Zwiebel gefeiert wird. Es war wunderbares Wetter, und deshalb ein ziemliches Gedränge.

Kuno is not impressed with the Büllenfest - a fair to celebrate a very special onion that is grown only on the Höri peninsula. The weather was great, so there was quite a crowd!

Ganz in der Nähe steht das Haus, in dem der Maler Otto Dix viele Jahre gewohnt hat. Dieser Garten gehört dazu. (Ich bekomme Ideen für das Zwergenhaus!)

Nearby the house can be visited where the painter Otto Dix lived for many years. This is its garden. (I'm getting ideas for the Gnome Home!)

Martha Dix, die Frau des Malers, ließ dieses Haus bauen. Das Doppelfenster gehört zum Atelier.

Martha Dix, the artist's wife, had the house built. The double glazed window belongs to the atelier.

Ganz so prächtig war unser Hotel nicht, aber doch recht proper, mit einem sehr schönen Garten.

Our hotel was less posh, but still very nice, with a large and lovely garden.

Auch wir hatten Aussicht auf einen kleinen See, den Steißlinger See.

We also had a view of a small lake, the Steißlingen lake.

Unser Zimmer war im Erdgeschoss. Da musste man aufpassen, dass die Dackel nicht ausbüxen!

Our room was on the ground floor. We had to watch the dachshunds so they didn't make a run for it!

    1. I always liked Otto Dix' art, even as a teenager. There is a large collection of his paintings at Stuttgart. I used to sit and watch his Großstadt (big city) tryptichon. My schoolmates though I was a little strange...

  2. Lovely scenery. Kuno would probably rather be at a fair celebrating bones!

    1. Kuno doesn't mind what is celebrated, as long as he doesn't get kicked accidentally by folks. There really was a large crowd! I never thought so many people like an onion that looks, well, like an onion... But we also bought some, of course.

  3. What a sweet little dog Kuno is! It looks like you had a great time away and the weather looked good too, as do the surroundings.
