Alsace, France continued

 

Today the day began with some French pastries- as everyday should.  We went into this place because of the massive bread loaves we saw being carted around.

whoa!

Then pastry time.  Soooooo good! The sign said: escargot with raisins.  I think they called it escargot with raisins because it was shaped like a snail and there weren’t really snails in it, but who knows, it was good either way!

Off to Colmar, France for the morning.

We found Lady Liberty’s twin!

Colmar is the birthplace of Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi- the man who designed the Statue of Liberty. They have a museum about his works and a section about the Statue of Liberty’s creation.

I wanted to eat everything, especially one of those baguettes.  Baguettes in France really are better than any I’ve had in the US.   The pretzels were not as good as they looked.  Cool display though.

Colmar is really one of the prettiest small towns I’ve seen in Europe. The design and upkeep of the houses, streets, and the city is spectacular! Next up we are off to a castle!

    Pretty! But still no real pics of Alayna? Really? I judge.

    Does the twitter icon mean I can tweet your blog? You totally surpassed my blog know-how!

    I think Hillary and I are doing hh if you want to run home for it. 🙂

      I have no idea if you can tweet my blog?!?! I gave my comoderator the address so maybe??? Alayna is always asleep or crying! I put one sort of up when she’s in her carseat- that sort of counts, right?

        Oh I can and did tweet your blog! Of course I don’t really use twitter so the only people who might have seen it are the people from work who are following me since the CI meeting. 🙂 There’s not much else to amuse myself with at 3:42 in the morning.
