12 Nov -- Fort Kleber in Strasbourg, France

On our last day we went to Fort Kleber and then drove home.

 Here is the apartment we stayed at--3 bedroom for 75 euros a night.  Not too shabby.

 Fort Kleber is about 3 miles northwest of Strasbourg.  It was built in the 1870s.

 To our surprise, there was a petting zoo inside, and Henry could not have been more excited--the ducks not so much.

 The zookeeper was super helpful and accommodating with out little kids.


 No joke--the goat's name was Henry...

...but he wanted nothing to do with our Henry.

 Such volume!

 Jane liked the slide...

 ...Henry did not... ALL!


 This strange contraption was along the highway in France, but we have no idea what it is.  It didn't look like a part of the irrigation system.  Any thoughts?

I swear this photo is not staged.

Looks like it could be a bird protection contraption, to keep big birds out. You sometimes see them over fish hatcheries. Maybe they were growing something special underneath?
