A Day in Alsace

A half day really. But we did our best to see, eat, and drink all that our representative Alsatian town of 
 Ribeauville, France had to offer.

Flowers are everywhere in the Cité  Fleurie.

And stork nests can be seen on every spire.

Here is where we tried to consume a humongous plate of the classic Alsatian dish choucroute garnie
It couldn't be done.

Grapes and vintners are put on a pedestal in this famous wine region.

The village is too charming for words. See the castle on the hill at the end of the street?

Goddesses of bountiful grape harvest are also held on high.

Stork Street.

Where else can you get vineyards, storks, and castles all in one shot?

And grape vines in the empty lot next to your hotel?

Alsace, that's where. We'll be back!
