MARCHPHOTOADAY: MARCH 16th : SUNGLASSES
We are sorry to interrupt your current Marchphotoaday post with special breaking news..
Mr R came up with a fun and exciting impromptu idea of taking a half day off and heading to Frankenmuth.
For those of you who don’t live here in the Mitt. Frankenmuth is also known as Little Bavaria.
It’s about an hour and a half drive from home.
The day was absolutely beautiful, Sunshine and 72 degrees ( I know.. and it’s March !!!)
The perfect day to walk around … see the sights and people watch.
One of the main attractions of this lovely little town is Bronners also known as The World’s Largest Christmas Store.
In spite the balmy weather.. Christmas was around us everywhere we looked.
The other main theme found throughout has a definite Bavarian slant.
German music wafting over the speakers of Main Street..It just makes you want to kick up your heels and dance a polka.
Ironically our first stop was not a culturally based store but more of a new age health store…
In general you could say the day was jammed packed with all things Bavarian ,Christmas and even Easter!
The entire town was festooned with Easter decorations.
Up and down the main drag, every home and business had some sort of Easter decoration.
It was just lovely.
Topiaries in shape of animals!
Oh look… How nice of Mr R to want to help get a leg up.
The Maypole fountain was not up and running yet.
Thought of my son when I saw this one.
The old covered bridge leads to and from the Bavarian Inn.
The water fall nearby.
Of the many shops that can be found at The River Place Shops
This one really caught my eye !!
EVERYWHERE you look … and I mean everywhere.. was a sea of material in Pepto Bismol Pink, this material was crimped and gathered on the walls and tables pulling off a pretty impressive look. If you like Pink.
I’ve never seen so many kinds of beaded jewelry !
Oh.. and while I was there… I also managed to get the photo of the day…
Till next time….Auf Wiedersehen ! ( Good bye )
