This was an unforgettable outing… when life gets too chaotic we are lucky
to have the possibility to run to the hills to seek solace in its protection.
Regardless to past behavior, nature embraces & cradles humanity unconditionally.

As hard as it was to choose the best of this collection, I tried to put myself
into the viewer “shoes” & select the top ones which came to a grand total of
sixteen so, my apologies for the length of this post 🙂

There is a castle in our backyard!

I have a hard time letting go of posting & getting on with restoring. I already know how to reduce the pixels which I have just done now with these two photos and feel I have climbed a step on the ladder of the blog-world 😉

I wanted to share with you this photo that seemed comical at the time. Imagine waking up one morning to see (I’m speaking of fantasy but this one is real!) a castle in your backyard! I wondered how the people living next to it felt with that as a view. Can you picture it?
