Blessed

Here are some more photos from my week in the area of Hannover, Niedersachsen and the Harz area where I met up with some family I had never met. The post war period scattered many of my relatives.Luckily for me I got a chance to reunite with some. And they took me to see treasures lik these that survived.



These structures went up in the 1100 hundreds. They have been well preserved. What a marvel. I'm so happy to have had the chance to view them because my family took time to show me. Have a happy Sunday.

How wonderful that you have reunited with members of your family. I'm so glad they so much of the very old buildings have survived into the twenty-first century for us to enjoy.

Beautiful! If only old trees AND old buildings were able to share their secrets with us!
