    Love A Good Fortress

    I love visiting old forts. Here in the US, there's not much on the castle front, but there are plenty go old forts to visit. One of my favorite places to visit is the old Spanish fortress at St. Augustine, FL - the Castillo de San Marcos. It was the first fortress I ever visited...

    Within the Walls, I Find Solace

    I can walk the halls of an old fortress, home, or castle and "feel" the people that have been there.  I sense the imprint of the energies of those that have gone before.  I am particularly moved by places where great battles took place.  The very mortar...

    Dungeon

    If I could have a castle modernized (good heating and good running water being the main concerns) I really would. They're so beautiful. Castles and Fortresses are high on my to-visit list when I travel. They're magnificent. I'm sure even some half destroyed ones would be...

    Tintagel Castle, Cornwall

    It's hardly worthy of being called a castle now. What's remaining of the structure is slowly crumbling into the sea. But there is simply something about Tintagel that is absolutely breathtaking.Β  I can imagine what it must have looked like back in its hay day. Legend has it that...

    Stunning

    I love wandering through the old castles, and some of the Roman fortress remains. It is amazing what those from the past built. Of course there is a fortress of my mind, which I try to keep the drawbridge open to.

    Of Course I Do

    Ah yes wandering around old fortresses is lots of fun. The one that I've been to the most is the one on Shark island  a fort converted to a prison then retired and a few ghost stories to go with it I'd really love to visit an old castle but they are in short supply here...
