Breaking News! U.F.O. runway in Schönbrunn

Yesterday afternoon TD, the Mermaid and I went for a walk in the palatial gardens of Schönbrunn. It had more or less snowed all weekend and so it was once more a winter wonderland of sorts. No, the Mermaid and I are not childish, whatever gave you that idea?schoenbrunn(onemorehandbag) That's the view from the "Gloriette" down to the imperial palace, by the way. From there, the Gloriette looks like that (see photo on the right below - dramatic clouds, eh?). On the left you can see an interesting U.F.O. airstrip with a jogger running past it, unfazed. Alien abduction? That might explain why our Empress Sisi is said to have indulged in some rather strange pastimes...
pending doom (onemorehandbag)Sadly, no little green aliens tried to abduct us or even offered to give us a lift back up the hill where we had parked our car. Even so, it was a lovely walk through the park where TD and I had our first romantic date last century. (On a sunny day in May 1995 to be precise).

Lunch-break-purchases: A magazine for me and a little surprise for TD. Sorry, can't tell you (yet).
