T.........ravel fun

Even though we are retired, we still like to relax and get away from time to time, both to visit out of state children and to explore areas nearer to home. Because I'm of Swiss heritage, we decided to visit the delightful town of New Glarus, Wisconsin. As we pulled to a parking space near the center of town, we were greeted by the carillon of the graceful old church with a noon time welcome. After lunch we toured the town and I posed in front of a cheese and fudge shop with just one of the many hand decorated brown Swiss cow statues that populate the downtown area. Of course, we had to buy fudge after that! David decided the cows weren't so innocuous after all! Who says old folks don't have fun!

I'm Swiss too, and I miss seeing these colorful cows! My favorites are the ones in Zurich!
