WW: Joslyn Castle {Linky}

This weekend we decided to take pictures at Joslyn Castle.

Father and Sons:

While we were out there a tour guide came out and said, "Do you want to join our tour in 5 minutes?" I've always wanted to go on a tour there, so I answered, "Yes please."

All I've ever shot were outdoor pictures you can see here.

The door weighs a ton, but can be opened with just one finger.




It's filled with tile work:


And wallpaper:



The ceilings are lavish!


Isaak's favorite was the gold room:

 



I liked the stairs:




Steps in the maid quarter's:


 

 

A few original handles got stollen a few years ago. These are originals.


 The highest floor:


The outside of the castle once again:



The original owners were from England, and wanted a castle like house. The architect was from Scotland, so inside there is a Scottish look. Have you ever been inside a castle?

How cool that you got to go inside. Wouldn't it be a fun place to play hide and seek? You got some excellent pictures.

How fun! I do love a good castle tour. We went to Casa Loma in Canada last year. I still need to go through the photos. I took so many, but it was such an incredible tour, how could I not?

I've never been inside a castle. Love the look of the one you visited, especially the outside.

Exquisite! The only castle I've been inside is Casa Loma, here in Toronto. But I've been to Westminster Abbey, which is pretty spectacular.

I'll bet your husband is proud of those boys. Nice looking young fellows. Are you thinking Air Force, Navy, Army or Marines for them? ;-)

I notice you always look nice when you go out. Then I thought about it, and I realized my wife always does too. So I asked her why she takes pains with her appearance when she goes to town, and I just wear old work clothes. She says ladies always like to look nice.

Then I was glad I never complained about her buying clothes and such when she has a closet full.

Nope to the military. It's kind of up to them though on what they want to do.
