Mainau (the “Flower Island”) is a popular destination in Lake Constance (or the Bodensee).  It has over 100 acres of gardens, a palace with a huge rose garden, an arboretum, and a butterfly house.  We took a day trip there over the 4th of July weekend.

It was beautiful, but HOT!  It was over 90 degrees–I know that doesn’t seem hot compared to Arizona, but then there’s no air conditioning anywhere over here (except in the car, and we needed it when we were done).  Rebecca really liked the butterfly house, but it was truly tropical; we finally had to leave before I completely dehydrated.

Something a little different–see the slideshow below for the pictures of our day trip to Mainau.
