Yes, another Castle! We had a snowy weekend and without childcare, down hill skiing is still a no-go. So, we continued on our tour de-Salzburg.
This castle, Schloss Hellbrunn, however is not a Fortress-type that overlooks Salzburg. Instead, Hellbrunn Palace and the parks that surround it are the result of the passions of one man, Markus Sittikus, an archbishop of Salzburg. He had the castle built in only 3 years (1613-1616) because it is said that he had a Love of Life. (Leben lieben!) It is a beautiful palace with gardens and fountains. Not just any fountains, but TRICK fountains that would spray his guests unexpectedly. Being winter and all, the fountains are not spraying, so I will include some pics of the walk around the palace with Eliot that we did on Sunday. I sure hope to return in the spring to get the whole picture.

The most recent state of our snowperson, however does not depict the moods of the Mize-Humphreys. We are doing well and look forward to more challenges and adventures ahead.
