Take a Rest


Even while I was on my vacation this summer, I could not pass up taking pictures that I knew would fit some of the memes I like to participate in on my blog. I took this one while eating lunch at a rest stop along the Autobahn on our way from Salzburg, Austria to Munich, Germany. We got caught up in that horrendous heat wave that gripped much of Europe this summer during the first part of our trip, but on this particular day, the weather had finally cooled off and we were able to enjoy our meal outside on a gloriously cool sunny day next to a playground and this little building with this cute mural. Translated it means "Take a rest", which we certainly did!

Yes, even on vacations, a blogger is always alert, nice one Lois. The heat is still on here 30C degrees today, it almost feels like Florida!

Very cute mural. I have a friend who also got caught in an unexpected heat wave in London of all places. It can be quite uncomfortable since most place don't have air conditioning.

I like! I don't like a lot of murals, but I like this one. It's just whimsical enough and has a great message. In fact, I think I'll go take a rest now!

At a snails's pace, even a rest is long and slow.

Perfect mural to illustrate your chance to eat outdoors. Glad the entire trip was not during that incredible heat wave. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
