A quick trip after Christmas took us to a small town just across the border in Germany. We rented a house through Airbnb and our host was so sweet. She said that they usually didn’t get this much snow. It was beautiful and serene, except when we were sliding on the roads.
I was fascinated by all of the firewood they had stacked up around the village.
I have stacked firewood before, I know how much work this is.
More and more firewood.
All of these piles were in the area around the house that we stayed.
I got to walk through this winter wonderland. How lucky am I? It was great to visit, but I am thankful that we no longer live in a snowy place.
Bird watching in the snow was challenging and fun.
I love this sign, no bikes, cars or horse and carriage.
Beware of dog signs in other countries are always interesting to me.
This purple berry bush was my favorite spots. The purple was still so vibrant.
This cigarette machine on the side of the road was interesting. I saw several of these around town.
Snowy vineyards are a beautiful sight.
We did make one trip into Colmar, we saw a replica of the Statue of Liberty. I ran into the Christmas market to get some things for lunch, but unfortunately it was so cold that day that we did not get to visit much.
