Shobak Castle (1st time)

As you approach Shobak Castle you can't see it anywhere and then it just pops out of nowhere. It is not a grand castle, but one of the most adventureous of all the Jordan Castles and we have seen plenty. It is on a hill between other hills so it doesn't stand out too much.
We arrive at about 5 pm and it started to hail within 5 minutes. So we got the short tour with promises that we would come back in March.
This is the endless pit that goes way deep into the ground of the castle--some 300 or 400 steps. The guide told us it was not too safe for kids so I will have to bring Daniel back and not get a guide next time. Be sure to bring a flash light because there are no windows--and leave Clausterphobic Gammie at home.
This is the museum in the Castle. We are always attracked to cannon balls.

This is the throne. He is the Prince, and I am the Queen.
