A Little Walk by a Moat
I really enjoy a walk in the evening after a long day slaving over a hot desk. Have you noticed that all the places I like to go have water? This is Caerphilly Castle in Wales, UK which is a wonderful place to visit. It stands on a central island surrounded by a moat with all sorts of ducks, geese and other wild fowl living there. The castle is one of the largest in the UK (second only to windsor Castle) and was built in 1268-1271 by Gilbert de Clare, the Anglo-Norman Lord. I have been into the castle which is impressive as much of it is fairly intact but even when it is closed a walk around the perimetre shows how formidable this structure is. Just another place I like to visit.
