i´m back from the Harz mountains, where we had a gathering of 20 like-minded stampers (some with husbands), knowing each other for many years and meeting every other year for a week of retreat and fun.
the weather was better than forecasted, so each day we had the chance to visit a town or walk in the surroundings for a few hours.
the harz is famous for its forest (part of it is a national park) and wonderful cultural places, some of them in the UNESCO World Heritage sites (as the old towns of Quedlinburg and Goslar).
of course i shot a lot of photos, but today i will Limit myself to monday (Halloween):
on monday we visited wernigerode, as there was a chocolate Festival:
the Festival was located in booth around the market place:
i think it took about three hours just to move around in a very limited space;)
lots of beautiful wrappings
yes, the season is ahead...
and these were my favorites:
"rusty" Tools - made of dark chocolate with cocoa powder
even chocolate beer was available
(to say the truth: i did not taste the flavour of chocolate in it)
another beautiful house in the town...
more about my visit in the Harz mountains next week...
i have to sort my photos first.

i started a sort of Color wheel, but there will be more to be done...
