Romance At The Castle

Those of you who have been following my blog for a while know of my love for and connection to the historic home, Bacon’s Castle. I have several new subscribers, so if you’d like to learn more, please click on the Bacon’s Castle category to the right.

A few weeks ago, I was asked to take part in “Romance At The Castle”,  a Valentine event taking place there last Sunday. The afternoon included wine tastings, food and tours of the house.  Carol, the site manager of the property, asked me to give a sort of “intro” to the tours by sharing my family’s history at the house.

Since Motor Man and I were married in front of the fireplace in the same room where I was to speak with the visitors, we had our picture taken in “our” spot.

The following video is a little dark, and the audio isn’t great, so I apologize for that. We wanted to be discreet about filming and were limited as to where to place the Go-pro camera.  Several of my family members and friends asked to see my part of Sunday’s program, and the easiest way for me to do that is to share it here on the blog. (Perhaps, if your browser supports it, you can use the full-screen option and “up” the volume a bit.)

There were three tours Sunday, and I spoke to each group. Motor Man and I had a great time; we were honored to be included in such a wonderful event.

As we were leaving, Motor Man took this picture of a contrail. He also captured just a bit of the sunset…

….as well as a glimpse of that beautiful old house.

It was a nice way to end a romantic afternoon at The Castle.
