The next day we headed out for a little rock climbing. Matt and Elizabeth are avid climbers and this region is home to quite a few climbing spots
The Saturday is really the reason why we came. There is a wine festival in a town called Eguisheim just outside of Colmar. Megan and I went to it a year ago and had a blast. We showed up mid afternoon and began sampling wines from all over the region and of course more Tarte Flambees. We took a liking to "Cremant". It is like the Alsacian version of Champagne. We managed to polish off a couple of bottles to help wash down all of the Tarte Flambees, sausages and Quiche that magically appeared before us. We called it a day about 9:30 just as the festival was getting packed with the younger crowd out surely for sampling purposes...
Our last day in Colmar started a little later for some reason and we headed off in search of more climbing. After a couple of hours of scaling slabs of granite, Meg and I decided to head off for a little hike around a lake nearby. It so reminded us of home with its tranquil atmosphere and gorgeous walking trails. All that was missing were a couple of canoes and maybe the sound of a loon. After meeting up with our avid climbing buddies Matt and Elizabeth, we headed back to Colmar for a fabulous dinner in the old town complete with fine wine, full bellies, incredible company, and of course crème brulee! A perfect way to end our mini-vacation with great friends.
Off to Switzerland again to catch our flight from Basel to Sardinia!
P.S. Happy Birthday Krista!!!
