We took the train from Kortrijk Belgium for the 30 minute journey into France! I just love the idea of being so close to so many countries here in Europe! "Oh, I think I'll go to France today!" Why Not???!!!
It was a perfect wintery day, with a festive chill in the air and fresh snow atop the more then 80 wooden chalets that lined Place Rihour in the centre of town.
The chalets were decorated so cute with lights, gingerbread men and several Christmas scenes.
I, of course must have and eat immediately, a beignet!
Now we did take some time out to have a real meal. This sign made it easy to decide what I wanted for lunch!
A nice pot of mussels cooked in white wine!
We enjoyed walking around and taking in this beautiful city.
But the views from the ferris wheel were spectacular!
I was loving the views......
....while Birgit was holding on for dear life!
Time to warm up with some Vin Chaud and enjoy the view.
I have entirely way to many pictures to show you for this post. But here are a few of my favorites!
Ok, I'll stop.....but if you would like to see more pictures just click this "Where's Debbie" and then on the album "Marche de Noel"
It was a fantastic day! But it's time to call it a day and head back to the train station.
