The Timeless Village

  We spent the day gathering our things together and by the time Ellen got home from work we were ready to get going.  She took us on a great tour of the countryside on the way to her parents house where we would be having dinner and staying for the night.  We first stopped in a very small little village that still had the thick thatched roofs on all the building.  Ellen went to a coffee shop while we explored the shops and parks and made our way to a bridge that overlooked the remains of an ancient castle.

  After that we walked down an old cart path for quite a ways and got pretty far beyond the town.  The air was crisp and refreshing.  There were smells of fall that even in Idaho I had never smelled.  It was good to be out in the fresh air.

  After a bit we met Ellen back at the coffee shop and she announced we had one more stop before dinner.  This stop was at on old abandoned Abby.  It was a tourist attraction, but it was closed and locked.  Ellen made us aware of a break in the wall and encouraged us to go in.  So we did.  It was almost creepy to be in the remains as dusk was falling, but we got some great pictures and hurried out.

  When we arrived at the farm, Ellen's parents were extremely inviting.  They showed us the our rooms and let us wander around their farm before dinner.  It was a delicious stew and we we grateful for the meal.  We made it to our bed and turned in for the night. Cheers.
