    1. Thank you for your kind words Cathy :o) Pearl was a lot more interested in this castle than in Castle Tioram (the castle that Eivor could not stop looking at) and she gazed at it from several angles. We had a very relaxing break and it is lovely to be back. Hope you had a wonderful week too and much love to you and Finn :o) xxx

  3. I really like your haiku Xenia and the way the dog is looking at the castle. The words and image go really well together. (btw. I got another “On the Road” prompt up after all. Your support really helped me focus my intention. Thank you – Suzanne). I look forward to seeing more photos of castles. Some of my distant ancestors had a castle in Scotland. I always imagine it looks something like the one you have photographed but I think the reality is it’s just a pile of stones.
