When company comes we turn into tourists in our own area.

We took a trip to castle in the clouds. It was build by Thomas Plante in 1914 and by the time of his death, through a series of bad
investments, he was so poor his wife had to take a collection to be able to bury him. How hard it must of been to lose this amazing house.

Beauty every where you looked

This is the ceiling in the dinning room.

There were lots of these stain glass windows through out the home.

This depicts one of the few water falls on the property.

He brought in ship builders in to do a lot of the wood working so beautiful. It was nice to have my brother here it had been 2 years since I had seen him so lots of catching up. Lots of great food
and a few laughs.

And this is the grand dog he stayed with us while
his Miss B went to Disney!
Have a great week!

It is always fun to go places with others, who have never been.
We went to the castle on our first camping trip. The days when photos had to be developed and we lost the roll of the inside photos. I guess someone spilled the solution on them when they were processing them, so I guess I will have to revisit. We ate in the stalls for lunch, is that still open?

Would have loved to be on that tour with you. Bet the castle in the clouds was magnificent; can't imagine living in something so spectacular.

The Castle in the Cloud looks like a great place to visit with friends and family. It's too bad Thomas ran into financial difficulty. He sure had a grand vision for his castle.
I hope that you're having a good summer. Can't believe it's almost over and soon September will greet us.
Stay happy and healthy.
