In light rain I headed over to Aldingen to get baked goods from the bakery, since the local bakery in Neckarrems is not open on Sundays. This intersection of the main road from Ludwigsburg with the road through the Neckar valley was a very busy place 30 years ago. Now a new alternate road takes traffic around town, and the intersection has been retrofitted to slow down the remaining traffic. One side of the street still has houses that have been there for probably more than 100 years. Even though this place looks a bit sad with the rain, the architecture reminds me of another time when small scale agriculture was part of the village fabric.

The Neckarschiffer sculpture on the corner. ... Let's go home for breakfast.
