This is a pretty typical town, small and charming. Note the castle at the top as well as the beautiful fall colors, especially in the vineyards, which are almost vertical!
This was where we stayed our last night. It's actually the Mosel River. Note again all the vineyards. Aren't you impressed with my photograph? Got a swan in the front!!
This is the castle I tried to blog about from my phone. This is a castle located in the middle of a forest. I'm not sure you can see all the beautiful fall colors. It's a most amazing place, almost like a fairy tale! We actually had a guided tour in English! It's also in fabulous condition, the best we saw. It's called Burg Eltz.
This was a restaurant in Bacharach where we ate. I think the building dates from the 1300s. There is a number in the upper left corner with the year! This is pretty typical architecture. Buildings there also frequently had vines growing over parts of the buildings, which were changing colors! Places like these also had outside gardens for dining although it was too late in the season for that when we were there.
Last, but not least, is my darling husband. Here is a picture of him along the Rhine River.
It was a wonderful trip which we thoroughly enjoyed. It's also good to be back home, though.
Love to you all,
