mein Fahrrad fährt mit Muskelkraft ohne E-Unterstützung
My suggestion to drink coffee at the highest was immediately accepted today. But on the new terrace of the mountain inn it was too cool for us because the fog lasted until the afternoon.
I used the way home for a short autumn hike. Parts of the route did not go along official paths, but along the edges of harvested fields.

The garden show in Überlingen only runs this week. Then it's over. So this was my last visit. In sunny autumn weather, the area was again well frequented. The guests could relax and enjoy the view of the glittering lake. The various loungers, sofas, chairs and benches invited to sit and chill.
With a cocktail in the beach bar, you got that holiday feeling.
I am curious to see what will be left of this garden show and will then go on the search for clues next year🔍.

The premium hiking trail GuckinsLand was on the plan today. The start was on the cool, foggy morning at the Fürstenbergweg parking lot. We saved ourselves the ascent to the tower, since no view was to be expected. And at the Möggenweiler parking lot we actually took the wrong turn - chatted too much, not paying attention. And because turning around was out of the question, a short stretch more or less cross-country followed.
Only at noon did the sun come through and the forest presented itself as early autumn, but still more green than colorful. That will certainly change soon.
At the end of the tour we are still on the Gehrenberg tower to at least have a look from above on the surrounding area. Lake Constance was still in the haze and the mountains could not even be imagined.

There was no plan for the holiday for a long time. The tour around the Überlinger See then happened spontaneously. The start was on the special stage at the Killenweiher to shorten it a bit. A short visit to the Capuchin Church in Überlingen (LGS) had to be again, of course, and in Bodman a look at the Lenk sculpture garden. His S21 memorial, which they do not want in Stuttgart, has found a place there. Then we went over the Bodanrück on well-developed bike paths to Wallhausen and on to Staad. The crossing with the ferry contributes about 4km to today's km performance😉.
Many such bike tours are probably no longer possible this season🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂.

It still looked like rain when the vote for the federal election in the Limpach polling station was finished. Nevertheless, I headed for the highest with optimism and because the weather was getting better and better, the lap was longer than expected. Illmensee, Echbeck, descent into the D'tal and then a bit on the Gehrenberg. In Urnau there was another visit to the relatives.
Today I preferred to take photos of metallic things along the way, because there were a number of motifs.

Today opening of the Apfelradlrunde, around the Gehrenberg. The new bike path leads past fruit farms and through the apple orchards for about 38km. To Oberteuringen, Markdorf, Ahausen, Bermatingen and back to Deggenhausertal, around the Gehrenberg.
The signage could be a little better, I almost missed Ahausen, where apple princesses offered apple slices and the band played. In general, there was food on the topic of apples at several stations today. Even if self-service in the apple orchards, which one could observe again and again, is definitely not desired.

The flower exhibition "Apple picker meets flower fairy" at the LGS in Überlingen runs until September 19th. So a visit was due today, and we went to Überlingen by bike. On the relatively early Sunday morning there was still little traffic, so the ride on the bike paths along the country roads was pleasant. Even at the garden show it wasn't that full before 12 o'clock. After that, more and more visitors flocked to the site and I made my way back.
Since today was also the day of the open monument, I took the opportunity to take a look at the construction site of a family that is restoring an old small-scale property - an interesting project.

Pioneer Bridge - that piqued my curiosity when I recently read that on a tour by @Norbert.
So today we went to the mountain at RV, to be precise to Weiler. The bridge is there in a ravine. On the further way I looked at the church of the Kellenried monastery and let the monastic tranquility on the site affect me. I planned the coffee break today in the country bloom in Blümetsweiler and was able to enjoy an absolutely delicious tiramisu cake 😋.

The Hoch Gaya spoils us with the best weather for outdoor activities. It's good that I still have vacation and was therefore able to take a bike tour to the tourist hotspots on the lake today.
The first stop for ice cream was in Unteruhldingen, then Iced coffee🍦☕ in Meersburg, and then also a lick of ice cream in Hagnau near Kibele🍦. You don't treat yourself to anything else 😋.

Today 2 birds with one stone: first I was able to see the Marc Chagall exhibition in the art museum Lindau, then the garden show.
The journey was relaxed by train (there will be a strike from the day after tomorrow).
Make sure to book an appointment online for the art exhibition in good time, I was lucky that it worked out today.
After the extensive tour of the garden show with a heavy rain shower when the weather was actually fine, there was a bit of sightseeing in Lindau before we went home again by train🚂.
