Morning in Puerto Varas — We awaken at our quaint bed and breakfast to the sight of flowers, and the lilting sound of ... German. It was being spoken across the street at the German School.
Puerto Varas — The town of Puerto Varas, viewed from atop the hill where our bed and breakfast resided. Under the early-morning gray skies, a large red balloon flies tethered by the shore, an artifact of some kind of event involving a giant stopwatch counting up.
Lake Llanquihue — A small two-master floats off a pier in the harbor of Puerto Varas. Volcan Calbuco looms in the background.
Pastures of Plenty — Cows roam among the thousands of acres (or hectares, whichever is greater).
Frutillar — A small tree forms its own island off the shore of the town of Frutillar.
Frutillar Flowerboxes — A small house by the waterfront is adorned with colorful flowerboxes.
German Influence — The style of architecture — not to mention food and art — has a very definite German influence here. The entire region is extremely European, evidenced by the fact that every town, including this one, has a Lutheran Church.
Front Row Seat — Looking over the lake toward 8800-foot Volcan Osorno from the overly-pristine beach at Frutillar, where even picnics are not allowed by town law. (Gee, can you tell it's a German town?)
