I took these yesterday at the castle. I have hundreds of pictures of the castle in my camera and on my computer. I’ve photographed in bright sunshine like this, on dull days, in the snow…it always looks great. It’s my favourite place in Aber, I think. I used to go there as a kid. We had family holidays not far away, and we’d usually come into Aber. My cousins and I would play in the park next door, or we’d all run wild around the ruins, climbing over bits of rock and imagining what the whole castle was like. There’s very little of the castle left now, but once you start exploring it properly you find bits of staircase still intact and can pick out some places where rooms must have been.
It’s a favourite place to have for lunch for MrKiss and I. We buy sandwiches and sit here, watching the sea. We came here when it snowed and had a mini snowball war. When he was here last, we lay on one of the slopes and nearly fell asleep in the sun. I’ve been going there a lot on my own lately. When it’s hot, I take a book, sometimes treat myself to a coffee (a caramel latte, what else?) from Costa, and sit here, my back against the stone, and read and listen to the waves.
I wasn’t really intending to write about this tonight. I wanted to share this pictures, especially the second one of those fantastic clouds, but I had a more normal post planned. I’m sorry. I just love this place and wanted to share.
Where’s your special place?
