is a foggy cloudy morning this morning
the first little square we came to
part of the square
a Christmas shop...perfect for Shez.....
one of the last remaining original town entrances
I liked this hanging on someone's front door..
wonderful street views
these were red geraniums...they go inside for winter..
lots of the old houses had messages written under the roof line
these two looked like they were going to lean into each other..
This was the smallest house in the village. .how cute is that??
buildings on the central town square..
interesting vews to the vines past the buildings
heading back to the car now...we drove along the Mosel River to another town whose name I have forgotten
there was a monument to the Roman soldiers who drowned while transporti g barrels of wine from one side of the Mosel to the other..
a couple of street views
we drove to a hill top look out
the fines stretched away below us..
the Reisling grapes are ready to be picked...we sampled a few and they were very sweet
this machine takes pickers up the hill and brings the boxes of grapes back down
I did do a little retail therapy...spotted these in a shop window and thought they would be perfect for our window seat
just need to find some cushion inserts when we get back!!
