Modesty’s Castle Wedding . . . #scavengerhunt 25

We’ve just returned from a wonderful long weekend away on the South Coast. The weather was absolutely lovely and I was delighted to discover that our hotel was just a short walk away from a restored cliff-top Castle.

Modesty Ablaze Castle Front Door

It seemed uncannily quiet as we wandered up to the front door . . . and even as we decided to explore the side entrances . . .

As we approached we could hear lovely music . . . what sounded like a string quartet playing from behind the windows overlooking the small courtyard and miniature maze . . .

ModestyCastleCourtyardOneAs I stood by the sun-dial preparing for my next pose, the music suddenly became louder as the doors behind me burst open and streams of people poured out onto the courtyard.

“Just one more pose by the sign!” Hubby suggested. “Ok then” I agreed . . .

Luckily I was able to regain my composure . . . and my modesty . . . smiling and offering a welcoming “oh I love your dress” to the bride as they briskly walked past.

ModestyCastleFinal“You should have been listening out for footsteps!” I hissed, and chastised Hubby, as they disappeared off to join the rest of their wedding party.

But it was fun, and such a lovely setting, that I thought I should share it with you here at Curvaceous Dee’s Scavenger Hunt site.
