We Came for the Cows. Again.
Those who know me, or read my posts also know that I adore cows. Decorate them for Almabtrieb, parade them into an alpine village, and I am there. This last weekend, the “there” was the charming town of St. Wolfgang in the Salzkammergut.
Friday was a Professional Day at the American School, so we loaded the wagon in the early afternoon and pointed westward. Just. Gorgeous.
Brown cows. Not Almabtrieb cows. I still had to take their picture, because.
Our last minute plans meant we could not be too choosy with accommodations. No complaints whatsoever with this view from the balcony of our last-minute suite booking, though!
On our arrival evening we walked about the town before dinner. Geranium-trimmed balconies are requisite in these parts; decorating with antlers is the norm; and the local dishes are elegant in their simplicity.
Saturday was all about the bovines. To keep us all happy until the cows came home were several vendors offering home decor items along with food, wine, and of course entertainment.
Love the Edelweiss collar.
Three herds of cows were driven to the pasture. This was Clayton Theodore’s first Almabtrieb, and he was as excited as I!
When I thought my alpine afternoon could not get any better, paradegoers were invited into the pasture!
One cow length away; I am a city gal, after all.
