My World Tuesday

Last week we went for a walk around this beautiful old castle not so far from our home. It was originated in the year 1420- Fourteenhundred and twenty.It has a big park around it where it is free to walk. There is a hotel-restaurant in it now.
This is my contribution to My World Tuesday today.

It's a beautiful building. I think it's great they're using it for something instead of letting it go to ruin.

That was built before our country was even "discovered!" Beautiful.

Looks more like a mansion than a castle, but absolutely gorgeous.

Wat een hoop mooie plekken bij jullie in de buurt. Momenteel valt er hier niet veel te wandelen, veel regen en wind maar dat gaat ook wel weer voorbij. groetjes Jannet

Prachtig gebouw. De tuinen rondom dit soort gebouwen zijn altijd zo mooi aangelegd en onderhouden. Fijn dat het voor iedereen toegankelijk is.

Good Morning Riet...
I am so lovin your new blog too sweetie. It is just beautiful. Photographs as well.

I love castles and this is exquisite. You have done a wonderful job photographing this castle. You caught the very essence of its being I believe.
I also loved the wooded area. How beautiful the trees are. Closed for the winter they say.

Thank you for sharing my special friend. As always I so love to come for God's beauty. You have an eye to capture that.

Thanks for stopping by, I so love it when you do. Happy Thanksgiving sweetie...Country hugs, Sherry

Wat een mooi plaatje Riet. Heb je er wel eens gegeten? Je voelt je er vast een prinses. Bij het zien van de foto met de wandelende meneer erop denk ik ineens aan een woord van vroeger. Het woord kuieren. Je ziet het bijna niemand meer doen. Ken je het woord nog? Het betekent zoiets als rustig wandelen...

Miss Rhea said...

Wow, such Gorgeous Photo's. You are so Blessed to live in such a beautiful place :) I could just crawl into your pictures and lose myself for awhile :) Happy Belated Pink Saturday !!
