January 11, 2016 - Short Video, Tons of Pics

Two time lapse videos of Adam making corn bread. Ha ha. Kinda cute. 

 Castle of Vincennes

This bridge is about 20 to 30 feet high. Good luck getting across, foot troops! haha :D Thought you would like this photo dad
This is called the king's walk. King CHarles V, King of France in the 14th century, lived in this castle, and he did a lot of things to build it up and stuff. This is apparently a high walkway the king would often take, going between two parts of the castle. 

 These paintings you see on this wall were made by prisoners in the castle--this is in the keep; the most secure part in the castle. It's like in Lord of the Rings, the Two Towers, when they draw back to the safer part. Same building.

Holy cow, this lock was SO HUGE!!! Look at that bolt! What it lacks in refinement it makes up for in sheer size!!

The beautiful Catholic chapel INSIDE the castle walls

This is the honorary grave of a prince of France who was unjustly killed but then whose remains  were recovered and put in this very case. Pretty cool, huh? Lots of symbolism. I loved the armor and arms below the people.

This little view is looking out a peephole. Archers could shoot down from here. Just what it would look like looking down into the castle courtyard from the keep's stairs. 

Mom's little note to me on christmas package :) love ya mom
