It was the first feeling of warmth and light of the season. We all needed it. Especially me.
We've already learned in our short time here to get out and see what there is to see. Experience it.
This weekend: Burg Eltz.
I thought it would take a while to get the boys to another castle after the last two during Spring Break.
But, we did it and they didn't even complain.
I LOVED it.

Burg Eltz is one of the few castles that was built down low in a valley. Surrounded by forest, you walk down at a pretty good decline before reaching the enormous structure.
Most castles are up on a hill for obvious reasons- you can see for miles and miles. Not here.
It's also one of the few that wasn't ruined during war times. I found it amazing- felt like we were in a page out of a fairytale.
It's that astounding.
Down below the castle is a nice stream that they took off their shoes and walked across. Next time, we'll pack a sack lunch and hang out for a while longer.
For some crazy reason, the rays feel much hotter here than in the midwest.
