I visited Schweinfurt Germany where my daughter and her family lived for a few years.
My visit was in late October thru early November 2007 . A trip I thoroughly enjoyed. I hope to go back again sometime, beautiful place. Everyone I met was friendly and very helpful when trying to make our way around. Here at Frankfurt airport after a pleasant plane ride
One thing I noticed as I made my way up the stairs is the gorgeous view from a window in the landing.
See those shutters on the windows in homes above, I love them. The roll up into this holding area at the top, and when pulled down over the windows at night, it was total darkness. I wouldn't mind having them as you wouldn't have to close curtains and didn't matter how sheer they would be , the shutters when pull, closed off any view what so ever.
I loved the windows too. Seth and I liked to position them with a little opening at the top so we could hear the soothing sound of the wind in the valley every night, I slept so soundly here.
Annette and I enjoyed the apples from the tree above of her neighbor who shared generously with us and gave us ideas on what to cook with them.
you can see in the distance a cemetery. Annette and I walked down to the village shopping area to get meat for the day and stopped here to take a look. Well taken care of and always some kind of beautiful arrangement for the deceased. Candles were always lit and there was a machine where you could place money and buy a candle to put in the holder when burnt out.
coming home after a morning out on a beautiful day
I took this picture as we were leaving the area of Annette's neighborhood
I have some of the castle too, will share another time.
