"Bud, don't just sit on that bench trying to remember how to solve your Square-1!"
"All right, I'll move to the other bench. And it isn't just a Square-1. It's a Super Square-1, and I can't get the middle layers back to squares."
"No, no, no. Get up. Go out in the courtyard!"
"Fine. I'm in the courtyard. Happy?"
Seriously, this castle and the grounds around it are absolutely beautiful. These three pictures were taken by my son at my request, but most of the time I was taking pictures and enjoying the sights with my family. Check out my Flickr photo page if you'd like. LINK
And seriously, the Super Square-1 was quite a challenge. Even using the notes I compiled when I first figured it out long ago, it was a challenge. I thought about starting from scratch, looking for another way to solve it, but gave that idea up quickly. I thought about throwing it away. I thought about giving it away. But in the end I worked through my notes and refined them somewhat to make them easier to remember. :D
Alex is focused very seriously on the 2x2x1 while his family (which I graciously cropped out) is clowning around around him.
