Castle, Fish, and Duck
My mother-in-law celebrated her 80th birthday in a beautiful moated castle (Wasserschloss Anholt) surrounded by a park - family and friends came and we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon together. The food was amazing too :-)
The kids in our party were so amazed by the huge carps that the very nice restaurant staff brought them a few pieces of bread to feed the fish ... I videotaped some of the resulting tumult in the water (see video above). Although the carps were probably harmless I was reminded of hungry sharks ... and I was suitably impressed by the fearless duck which tried to catch some of the bread while surrounded by these water beasts.
