To complete the walk around Lindau (see previous post for the first part), all I had to do was to keep close to the water and cross the road near the Spielbank (casino).
From there, the path takes on something of a different character; it becomes more "fancy", if you like, with roses planted alongside and leading up to the private yacht harbour where members only are allowed to moor. In the summer, this bit is very busy, but now all boats are covered for the winter, and there were only a few people about for maintenance work.
At this point, I had completed my walk around the island.
I found these two sleeping beauties snoozing in the main harbour. The picture of the lighthouse was taken from the base of the Lion, same as this selfie. (The Lion being the same one you can see in the first picture of my previous post.)
Usually, boats and ships are coming and going all the time; not just for tourists, but also the people who live and work around the lake use them to get from A to B, as it sometimes can be quicker than by road. At this time of the year, however, traffic is much reduced, and this was one of the few boats I actually saw in action.

Oh dear! People can't leave an iron railing alone these days, it seems. The "love lock" fad started with bridges, and now it looks as if it is spreading to just any type of railing. This is not a bridge but the railing around the base of the Lion. Also, people throw coins, trying to land them on top of the pillars. I could think of a thousand better things to do with one's money.
It was lunch time by now, of which my stomach reminded me with quite some insistance. I went for something to eat at a place called "Die Möwe Jonathan" ("Jonathan the Seagull"), which is the German name of the novel "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" by Richard Bach, published in 1970. I have not read the novel, but it has become famous enough for everyone to associate the name Jonathan with seagulls, I think.
Anyway, my lunch was nice, chatting with the hostess and watching the world go by, thinking about what to do for the afternoon.
The café/restaurant have their own facebook page, if you are interested.
I'll let you know what I did in the afternoon in my next post.
