Name the 2 known nations and water.

If you've been here, you know this view. Not as famous as the view off the other side, but still impressive.

I had a feeling you'd nail that one quickly. Officially known as MarienBrücke. Here's the more famous view from there. As you can see, we picked a poor time to visit. Scaffolding everywhere.

You got it. My home town. That pier and beach were the center of my life growing up.

My wife grew up in a nice hillside area a few miles away. I always teased here that her town was not named in a Beach Boy song! She was not very impressed!

Yeah, those rotten Beach Boys left that one out. How could they do that? Guess it just didn't fit well. lol

Edit: assuming her town was Manhattan Beach as well.

There had been an early October snow just before we got there, so the bridge was pretty slick. The snow made for some nice scenery shots, though.
