We just go back from a long weekend in Strasbourg. Strasbourg is a pretty, pretty, pretty town even when it's chilly and there isn't a speck of sunshine.
Notice the unofficial Mickey Mouse on the carousel - that always makes me laugh.
The huge gothic cathedral is amazing - it seemed even more massive against the flat white sky. We could hear the bells loud and clear from our hotel room.
There are storks all over Strasbourg - there were bunches of them in the trees and on tops of buildings and they adorn every sort of tourist souvenir that you can imagine.
We took a boat tour along the canals. It was toasty warm on the boat and we learned all about Strasbourg listening to their recording.
Here we are going through a lock - Bea was very interested in how it all works.
The girls were pretty good walkers - we only used the stroller getting to and from the train station. When I asked Bea about her favorite part of our little vacation she said the hotel. Nothing beats staying at a hotel for them. It was extra fun this time because we had two rooms connected by stairs. The top room was for sleeping and it was like a cozy little attic in the peak of the roof.
Here we are walking along the locks and into the quaint Petit France area.
Bonus on the way home - we got the playground car all to ourselves. So cool.
