Summer on the Neckar

Devised on 9 August 2017 by Rod Downey, Summer on the Neckar is dedicated to the Scottish Country Dancing group in Heidelberg, who Rod and Kristin danced with many times in 2017 and 2018.

Heidelberg lies on the beautiful Neckar River and is a remarkably nice place to be over the summer.

Rod and Kristin have lots of very fond memories with ice cream, cycling and biergartens high on this list as well as dancing, of course.
