Well this week is all upside down with Ian having his eye op and collection Daisy for a few days, we went to Ashford via Walmer on Sunday. The weather was ok not hot but breezy so a good day was spent at the castle before picking Daisy up later in the day.
First a view from the road which goes along the sea front.
Inside looking over the Battlements with the road and out to sea. It looked really blue that day and we both commented on it.
Back at the main gatehouse entrance after parking the car we entered a courtyard with tea rooms and toilets.
From inside the kitchen garden area looking towards one of the Bastions
Cannon mounted on the Bastions looking out to sea.
More Cannons protecting the castle
The ramparts were covered in wild flowers, growing from the brickwork.
Bridge from first floor Bastion to garden across the ditch.
View from below in the ditch (I thought it was a moat but I am reliably informed that a moat has water and a ditch does not).
Well that's the first glimpse of the outside of the castle, they wont let you take photographs inside so I made the next blog of the gardens in which Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother spent a lot of time in, so you are in for a treat.
Thanks for dropping by.
nite nite, luv Mike XX
