It was a lovely, warm summer day in July 2004.
So we drove about an hour out of town to one of
the big lakes near Munich.
The Ammersee has a big public beach, several public boat lines going across it, and lots of people there on the weekends.
Tom had to overcome his nerve-wrecking parking experience, but after that we enjoyed an hour on the old steam boat. We had beer and strawberry-cheese cake.
Later I went to swim in the lake and Mollie almost dared to go in too. Tom would never consider even trying such a thing.
