26 Nov -- Chiemsee, Germany

We again ventured out of Salzburg.  On our last day we drove to Chiemsee, Germany, a really nice lake with a couple islands in the middle.

We saw a cool horse drawn beer carriage in Salzburg before we left.

This was Frauenchiemsee, the smaller of the two islands, and where the Christmas Market was. 

 We rode out on a boat and the kids were great.

 It never stopped snowing!  We first went to Herrenchiemsee, the larger of the two islands.  We re-bundled up the kids and headed to the doors of the boat when we realized they were already pulling away from the island.  Whoops.  The workers were kind enough to pull back up to the dock for us to get out.  They joked that they wouldn't let kids swim, but I think if it wasn't for Charlie, Jane and Henry, we might have had to swim for it.

 We went for a 20 minute walk to the Neues Schloss, or New Castle...and 20 minutes back to the boat.  We are crazy!

Very windy walk

 Next stop, Frauenchiemsee, and the Christmas Market.

The kids spent most of the day in the stroller, hidden under blankets and the wind cover.  Very smart.  And if you peer closely, you'll see Jane screaming.

 Still snowing!

Jane liked laying on the ground under the carpet at the apartment


Salzburg was fun.
