  73. 73. The Danish Kronborg Castle.
  74. 74. Marvin and I.
  75. 75. From the inside looking out. This is a beautiful castle and has something to do with Hamlet and Shakespear.
  76. 76. The castle has been renovated in to a museum now. It was not too crowded with people the day that we went which was nice so that we could leisurely browse the museum.
  77. 77. This is from the bow of a ship. It is supposed to look intimidating, but it looks nice to me.
  78. 78. Wine Chest
  79. 79. The museum is a marine museum. While we were inside looking at the museum, it started hailing outside.
  80. 80. Money Chest
  81. 81. Now, the problem with this artifact is that it is not being used. It was cold and this would have looked a lot better with a fire in it.
  82. 82. From the bow again… maybe she was pretty before she weathered all those days at sea…
  83. 83. What ever boat bow this was on, they must have been trying to scare other boats away. She definitely would have sent the men running the other direction.
  84. 84. Okay, finally we found the friendly ship. There were several of these ship bows there on exhibit.
  85. 85. Another warrior ship. No, these are achtually all jokes. I have no idea what kind of ships these went on. Just adlibing for the comic effect.
  86. 86. Ship Frame
  87. 87. This one is pulling the oldest line in the book. “Hey did you see that?” This is one sheepish boat.
  88. 88. Picture through the museum window. This is one of the few windows that I have seen that has a single door. Most windows have double doors to keep out the cold.
  89. 89. This would be after it hailed. It didn’t stick though because it was too warm.
  90. 90. The veiw from the top of the castle was amazing. Definitely worth walking up the never ending spiral staircase.
  91. 91. The flag in this picture is not posed that way. That would be the wonderful bone chilling wind.
  92. 92. I have no idea what any of the things on this mean except stop. First of all it’s in Danish and second of all I don’t speak ship.
  93. 93. More pictures from the marine museum.
