Colmar, France is noted for being picturesque and a part of that comes from the narrow boats plying their way up and down the section of the river Lauch that cuts through the colorful, half-timbered houses and businesses. After lunch under the awnings in the restaurant on the right, we, like so many others, took photos from the Saint-Pierre Bridge. We did not, however, take a boat ride. All our exploration was done on foot.
There were many smiling tourists enjoying a peaceful ride in flat-bottomed boats probably similar to those that used to display fruits and vegetables in the past.
Some boats are more water-worthy than others. But no matter where you go and how you get there, in Colmar there are flowers, colors, beauty…and tourists. But that’s fine. We were tourists, too, and Colmar is a tourist destination for obvious reasons.
Automated notice (not really, but isn’t that how the email message goes?): I will be out of the
office house the next several days, at my 45th high school reunion in Nebraska. I’ll be back on Monday morning bright and early. Please excuse any tardy responses. Having a blast. Why wasn’t high school this much fun?
