Castleing in Passing

Half a dozen jokes start with how many castles there are in the British Isles, and how easy it is to stumble over one on your way to the grocery store. When my friend Liz and I took a mini road trip to Wales in May, we found this to be entirely true. We took advantage of it and did some castleing in passing, making very minor detours to peek at centuries-old stone edifices a few miles off the beaten path.

Here are the drive-by castles of our Welsh adventure:

  1. Ted and I spent three weeks on a driving trip in Wales and loved it. Ted is a Father Cadfael fan so we made a pilgrimage to Shrewsbury (SP???)Cathedral as well. Thanks for recalling beautiful memories. Love, Dana and Ted Calhoon
