And around back, an outdoor stairway:
But the best find of all was one which I thought would stump me:
A bride! Apparently, people hold weddings at the castle, and we were lucky enough to stumble across one. Sian and I felt a bit like paparazzi taking here picture, but it was all good fun.
So, have you started on the scavenger hunt yet? The official list is in this post, as well as on my sidebar. Feel free to grab a scavenger hunt blog button, too (sorry this text is a bit small but I'm still learning how to do these things). Also, please let me know if you have any questions. Someone wondered what "a border" is, and I answered that it was open to many interpretations: a border between countries, states or cities; a flower border; a scrapbook border; etc. Really any kind of divider intended to mark a distinction between two areas would count, I think. Remember, the scavenger hunt is all about having fun, keeping your eyes open, and perhaps visiting a few new places over the summer. I'm thrilled by the number of people who replied to say they are participating this year. Over 40!!! I'm trying to add everyone's blogs to my reader, so I can come by and visit. So, if you plan to participate and did not leave a comment in the earlier post, let me know so I can be sure and visit you.
