Castles and Manor Houses
This is a photo I took this morning at 7.30 from my window. They are building a Cycle Path along the beach, we are surprised at this large clearance and are waiting to see how it is going to develop. I shall be very upset if they spoil the view.
I might have confused some people recently. I do live opposite a proper castle which you might be able to see in the distance in this photo. But I don't get my inspiration at a castle, I stay at this large Mansion House two or three times a year for a couple of days only on textile courses, but I would love to stay there for longer.
All the pleasure is in the surroundings. There are wonderful grounds with woodland walks, a lake and gardens. It's a wonderful setting.
