Feldkirch, AustriaPost 5/9 of Spring Break Travels: April 11th, 2009
We hadn't booked anyplace to stay for the 3rd and final night of this 4-country trip, as we weren't sure whether we would want to stay in Liechtenstein, Austria, or even stay another night in Italy. It ended up that we pushed on into the very western trip of Austria, and we were glad we did. Feldkirch is the first town one reaches, and it's a lovely, quiet place with a nice Saturday market and a little castle on a hill. Our Tom-Tom even provided the name of a local hotel: the Alpenrose. Great little place with a non-smoking dining room (across the hall from the smoking one), friendly staff, and delicious food. And two rooms awaiting our arrival, across from each other.
The next morning, we strolled around the village market offering abundant flowers and little animals carved out of wood or fashioned from twigs, and of course local edible produce. Then we investigated the castle, and took a hike in the nearby wooded hills, enjoying a devotional time surrounding the Resurrection and how Jesus shares His abundant Life and power with us.

I liked these flowers growing on top of a stump. Identification, please? I have such talented floral-recognizer-readers...

Beautiful flowers, in the wild and in the town. Nice town, too.
Is he trying to re-do "The Sound of Music?"
