Ae Fond Kiss

Ewloe Castle

Taking a photo of the ruined interior of Ewloe Castle with children scrambled over it I did not notice the romance in front of me until I downloaded the pictures. A kiss in the castle, or for the purposes of this week's ABC Wednesday I'll switch to Esperanto and say , kisi en la  kastelo.
The day was not grey as it looks in the pictures (I was shooting into the sun), and was in fact a
blue sky day.  This was  a peaceful border land until the Norman invasion of England in 1066 and then was fought over for 200 years by the Welsh and Norman England. Happily today it is just a place for walking and a kiss rather than a killing.

An entry to ABC Wednesday - a journey through the alphabet, sojourning this week at K
