A Leisurely Day

Today we enjoyed a walking tour of Old Town Colmar and a trip to the Antoine Bartholdi Museum.

Jeanne and Mary Ellen kept us in line with a smile.




Muriel was our tour guide through the old town area and the Antoine Bartholdi Museum.




Lots of fascinating information about the local history and the architecture. For a quilter there were colors, designs and patterns every where!




Charming, charming, charming!



Muriel took us through a farmers market and you had better believe that we went back during our free time.




Did someone say, "I only pray to Cheeses?". I am in cheese heaven!










Look at these cobble stones...like the Stonehenge fabrics!




And look at this fabulous metal sculpture on a door.




We made our way to the Antoine Bartholdi museum...does he sound familiar? The creator of the Statue of Liberty! I loved this piece of historical information, these side tour have been wonderful.







Here is Robin telling the ear a secret. This is a replica of the Statue of Liberty's ear but at half scale!




On some days we are on our own for lunch and dinner but tonight is a group dinner. Jeanne must be wanting to feed us well...get us tucked in...because tomorrow is...Quilt Show!!!
