On our first full day in Germany, I awoke early due to the effects of jet lag. But that was okay because I had agreed to go to the Hamburg Fish Market with Wolfgang and Julius. All other family members decided to stay in bed, including Mike, so it was just me and the boys!
Julius used his expertise to pick out a melon.
Later that day, we traveled to the Altes Land, an area of Northern Germany that is well-known for its beauty and plentiful orchards.
After the Altes Land, we stopped in Strade, a beautiful little town that is reminiscent of times past.
We went into a beautiful old church that had one of those organs I wish we had more of in America.
In the bottom corners of the previous photo, you can see the paintings that lined the aisles. They were gorgeous at first glance, but upon taking a closer look I discovered that they were scenes from the life of Christ.
