Germany 2012- Part 1 Husum

A large selection of juices greeted us each morning...

 
...plus various meats, shrimp and lots of pickled herring.

 
Fresh and dried fruit, muesli, yogurt and eggs were all available...

...and I didn't even get a photo of the incredible rolls and bread!

 
***********************************************************
The gift shop of the "Christmas House Museum"...



...with thousands of traditional blown glass German ornaments.



It looked like something from a storybook to me...
  
 
...and featured marzipan candies in every conceivable shape and design.

 
I wanted one of everything! :)

 
You know that I can never travel without taking some food photos...

...and I thought that you might enjoy seeing the array of breakfast foods that we chose from each day.

Although I never managed to meet up with any area feltmakers...

...I nonetheless made good use of my 'alone time' while my partner visited with his mother.

Each morning, after checking in on her for a bit...

...I set out, alone, on a different errand or to see a different bit of the city.

One of the area highlights is the "Christmas House Museum"...

...a privately held collection of over 200 years' worth of Christmas artifacts.

Since the museum staff requests that any photos taken within the museum not be used on-line...

...I took photos of the public gift shop, instead.

 I think it gives you a taste of the amazing contents of this truly unique collection!

My deepest sympathies to Jan and yourself. I'm sure it is a great loss for him, but it was wonderful that they had time together before she was gone.

I loved all the wonderful and interesting photos. That first photo of the very tall apartment or office building was really different. I would get sick if I lived on one of those upper floors. Always waiting for the whole thing to topple over. LOL
