A visit to Culzean Castle with Bridget
Bridget sent me this wonderful postcard of the cornfield at Culzean Castle that they sometimes cut into a maze that she says is great fun to get lost in.
Her postcard also says that she often drives the 10 miles to the Castle to play with the grandchildren. I am shocked too, you don't look old enough to have grandchildren!!
She will also go to walk with friends along the beach or in the wooded grounds. The castle dates back to the 1400's but was rebuilt into a classical mansion in the 18th century, www.culzeanexperience.org is the link to learn more about its history.
She goes on to say that there is so much to see that she often goes there just to paint and sketch.
Thank you so much Bridget, the painting is so beautiful! How I wish I could depict so much and still be so loose! I am off to explore the website, you made it sound so appealing that I wish I could walk and paint with you there!
Living in the states I really miss the history that you all have and I love the thought of old Castles and ruins!
