Well, what can I say? If I had wanted to go out and do something nice this weekend there was no way it could have happened. On Good Friday we had howling gales and snow, the latter which settled overnight into Saturday which any of my regular readers will know forced the castle to close for the day.
Easter Sunday had more snow settle overnight, but thankfully though it snowed and hailed all day, we were able to open the castle for the Easter event, taking the hunt inside the castle. We had a great and loyal turnout – thank you to all of you that came on Sunday – I hope you had a great time.
It was a pleasantly busy day (though cold in the Library even with heaters – note to any aspiring castle guides – always wear at least 2 jumpers in the winter and consider ski socks and gloves) unfortunately I was too busy and cold for that matter to take any photos – sorry! It has continued to chuck down snow all today as well, so I imagine it was much the same at the castle, though I had to work at my day job and wasn’t there.
Hoping to go out with my camera and have other historical things to do at the end of the week, so keep your fingers crossed for me. It’s come to something that I’m hoping it rains…off to bed to warm up now with good book!
