Beautiful winter day



Clear sky, unusually warm for winter - beautiful day! We visited the Bled castle but forgot the camera at home. What a shame.

"Perched atop a steep cliff rising 130 metres above the glacial Lake Bled is a symbol of Bled and Slovenia – Bled Castle. The image of the castle forming a dramatic backdrop to the romantic island and the church on it has earned the resort worldwide recognition through the centuries. Castle terraces offer spectacular views of the lake and the island, down the De┼żela area with Lesce and Radovljica and over to the mountain ranges of the Karavanke and the Julian Alps."

You can still some photos of it  but I wanted to share some details of the windows shutters or beautiful metal sparrows on the fence above the precipice. When we go there for the next time :)

And the Carnival is coming in a month. I am crocheting a helmet for my big "knight to be". We got some ideas for the knight's costume today, My husband will sew a small leather purse, he has already made the sword and the shield. I hope my son will stick to the idea of being a knght and not change to the pirate ;)
