Our next stop in Colmar was the Unterlinden Museum.
A beautiful structure!
Check out the 90 degree twist in the columns of the well’s pulley support.. I wonder how they did that – and why.
There is a series of huge paintings depicting Christ.
After the museum, we went to this restaurant for lunch.
Inside was very quaint and cozy. And at least it was warm.
We had a salad, quiche, and some wine. Even though real men don’t eat quiche, I ate this one and it was quite good. And I don’t think I compromised my masculinity. Some of the other guys in our group had some, too.
Debbie and Kathy take a stroll to see some of the town.
It appears that a little weather is moving in over the vineyards.
Riesling is the most popular wine they import from this region. This is one of the vineyards. The bottom part of the photo is blurred because I took it from a moving bus. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.
The aromas emanating from this macaroon shop were to die for. (As they say in today’s vernacular).
Another narrow cobblestone street.
I like they way they trained this grapevine to grow out of the sidewalk and up the side of the building.
Our next adventure was on the canal boat in Strasbourg, France.
These are a couple of buildings that we saw on the side of the canal. It was difficult to get decent photos because of the reflections from inside the canopy.
Our next post will be a tour of the Cathedral Notre Dame, (of Strasbourg, not Paris).
