A castle in the sun

When you wake up and pull the curtains back and the room fills with sunshine you know its going to be a fabulous day.  We decided to investigate the castle so off we went, dogs included.  It soon transpired that the older dogs were going to struggle in the heat so we stopped every now and then to let them lay in the shade.

There were some stunning views to capture …

Plus a few features I couldn’t resist …

We didn’t go inside the castle because we had the dogs so we sat for a while near a bar.

Where of course we had to sample the local beer and got the dogs some much needed water.

we headed off to get some lunch in the city centre.  I ordered Ravioli and got a bowl of soup first!  Is this usual I wonder?  An older gentleman arrived at the restaurant dressed entirely in yellow and red … even his shoes were yellow.  I couldn’t resist taking a photo …

It’s a shame you can’t see the rest of him, he looked amazing.

I love how people sit down in a restaurant for a coffee or a drink completely alone without feeling self-conscience.  It’s something I wouldn’t dream of doing in England.

We attempted to buy the men some new walking sandals, this proved unsuccessful however I did buy 2 dresses and a bracelet! So not exactly a wasted trip 🙂
