When we went to bed late Saturday night (well, midnight), we told ourselves we would sleep in the next day. We had a rare Sunday off together, after all. But then I woke up at 8:30 and started thinking about how we might fill our day together-- oh, the possibilities. It wasn't long before I woke my hubby, and soon we found ourselves in the car, blinking blearily through the windshield as the hills looped out ahead of us, headed off for an adventure.
This castle is an amazing place. It's near Roscoe, NY, and after hearing from one friend or another who'd explored it, over the years, we decided it was time to make a foray of our own. Here's a link with more photos and information: http://theartofdecay.com/2011/08/10/the-lonely-castle/
What a fabulously beautiful and creepy place.
The arched windows, the peeling paint, and all that marble...
It was so nice to do something totally thrilling and scary and novel together again, for the first time a whole long summer's worth of busy times. There's that thing going around on Pinterest and other places that asks, "When's the last time you did something for the first time?" and today I'm proud to have a kick-ass answer for that question. I explored an abandoned castle. Yes. Yes, I did.
