Back Tracking

Oops! I was going to tell you about the second half of the excursion to the cuckoo clock shop!
With a name like Schwarzwalden Freilichtmuseum Vogtsbauernhof (Black Forest Open Air Museum) is it any wonder I forgot!? What a neat place ! It's an educational look back into farm life in the 16th through 18th centuries, showcasing  several homes (with animals and people sharing the same thatched roof) and other structures that would make up a farm village.

Local craftsmen, in period outfits, were demonstrating such things as weaving, cooking and gardening.

and real life farm animals that seemed eager to meet you! Problem is our visit was too short!. I vote to scratch the Cuckoo Shop a spend more time here!
