  6. Once more; beautiful, interesting and educational. I've never heard about the Moravian Star before. Now I've seen it in straw, tin and crystal. Just amazing.
    I listened to the Christmas service, and even though it's a bit early for me, I got caught by the song, the candles and the way the congregation behaved in church.
    Thanks for sharing.

  7. What a quaint and picturesque town. Fall is the best time to visit these citys because of all the beautiful colors of fall-orange, red and sometimes blue. Adore the brick sidewalks and the brown tea set.

  8. Lovely photos, Myrna. Your trip sounds like it was a lot of fun. Those pumpkin cakes sound good too.

  9. I like the Fall colours, the historic garb and the pumpkin fritters. It is putting me in the mood for a Thanksgiving feast ;-)
