life through the eye of my sewing needle and very little, to be honest, about sewers

Photos of Furth

the hotel is  in the black forest

after just a few steps, this is what the forsthaus looks like

what has been true of the forsthaus forever is that it's the hotel to go to if you want to see the wild pigs. now they are fenced in a large area, but they didn't used to be fenced in at all when i first started staying here.
today is saturday and this young child and a parent or grandparent brought raw spaghetti for the pigs. 

Babies! i counted four or five. they grunt and snort and run to the fence when dogs show up.

this was made by my friend Leslie. i'm so glad that i have it on this trip. i took it on my short forest walk.

and after the walk, just me in the forsthaus bar with the lights off and a worn copy of a newspaper that i could read.


  1. Nice pictures, Susan! I like the wild pigs. And I like seeing the little sachet there with you!

  2. Susan - your photos are remarkable. I like your viewpoint in this unfamiliar (to me) land. I'm anxious for you to be back in the States. Miss you bunches!! Diane :)
