Visit to Colmar, France

On a Sunday we went to Colmar, France by car with Christoph. La-di-dah, okay you are tired of reading that but, again, it just feels that way so get used to it. As you can see it was a cloudy day but warm.

You know these two!

We got lost in Colmar, looking for a restaurant on a stream that runs through the main part of town, well never mind, we did find the restaurant and it’s called le Comptoir de Georges (not that you care about the name but I want it noted for future reference). Tables are on a patio very close to the water and there were tourists going by in small boats. The town has many half timbered houses in multitudes of colours, many with colourful flower boxes on the sills. 

Wine Shop

Lovely roof! 

After lunch we walked close to the cathedral to have a coffee. I went into the cathedral and it was dark and not at all welcoming so I surely didn’t stay long. 

The outside is worth a look and it has a working clock, unusual for most. Being Sunday it was crazy busy in the town so parking was an issue and we were lucky to get a table on the terrace of the restaurant. 

This coming Sunday we’re training to Brussels and the next day Ghent where we’ll be for three weeks. "Talk" to you from there.

Cheers Bx2 and Lexi Cat
