ST. DONAT’S CASTLE
The second half of my trip to the UK was spent in Wales. We visited Carol’s school, Atlantic College which is housed in a twelfth century castle, complete with a jousting ground. I was able to spend one cold afternoon exploring the grounds. I took so many pictures, I think it will have to be a two part post. Really incredible! Carol feels so lucky to have had this opportunity to attend school in such a magical setting. Carol’s dad is an earlier graduate of Atlantic College, and is actively trying to help them raise funds to restore the castle-it desperately needs a little TLC.
There is a tiny church on the castle grounds surrounded by the most beautiful old cemetery. I took lots of photos. All of Wales looks just like a movie set. I wish I had photographed the roads–they were really something to see. Tiny, tiny passage ways with ancient stone walls on either side. Makes for a very interesting car ride.
Ran into this gorgeous German Shepard walking around the church grounds. Such a pretty boy.
Stained glass window inside the church.
That’s all for now–I have some pictures to share of the beach in my next post.
