  1. Wow how cool is that!!! 😉 I swear I could smell the ocean. I love the castle, I love all things castle-like, perhaps I lived during the castle era because it so resonates with me, and wearing gowns like they used to and the tall, pointy hats with the chiffon attached! Your homeland is beautiful, it explains why you have such a beautiful soul. xo
