On our last day, we drove through the town of Heidelberg...and it took us some ridiculous navigating to find parking for this monstrous castle, but in the end it was worth it.
But...before I get into the last day...I wanted to post some pictures of what we did after we came back from Luxembourg on Day 2 of our journeys.
Noah has inherited our love for ducks...he enjoyed chasing them around anyway...And now for the castle pictures..
These pictures don't capture the size at all...this place was huge!A lot of the castle was in ruins, not like most of the castles I've seen here. I thought the ruins gave it a really neat feel...and Im not kidding, this place was massive!
Complete with 2 humongous..I mean huge casks of Im assuming...wine? Beer? Here's the smaller one!
And the bigger one..this one was about 2 times the size of the one above!!! It had a staircase you climbed up to go up and around it and back down again!...yeah this thing was enormous!
And the castle grounds were quite lovely.
We sure did enjoy our lil 3 day excursion. We listened to "The Dawn Treader" (one of the books from the Chronicles of Narnia) while we drove. It was great. Me and Mark loved it. Especially when the book would refer to the "poop"...which meant the poopdeck on the ship...but they just kept calling it the poop, and it made us giggle.
We really had a wonderful time with Mark, especially all the yummy food I got to make.:) We enjoyed our amazing buttermilk biscuits (recipe of my sweet friend Melody) so much, that I made them a second time before he left:) And of course my landlord, Peter sent him home with fun yummy goodies to eat too!
