Castles and Comics


image image image imageOn our trip last week to Bonnie Scotland we say many derelict castles. We visited Culzean castle, situated on a promontory along the Ayrshire coast. I am sure that the scenic coastline is stunning but we couldn’t see much due to the mist rolling in.

We passed Kennedy castle which is a grand pile of stones. I was particularly interested to visit Culzean castle as it was the stronghold of the Kennedy clan. My maiden name was Kennedy so I spent a long time daydreaming that they would discover that I was the long lost Kennedy relative set to inherit this beautiful castle. Sadly it was not to be! I did have a lovely day though.

I mentioned comics. We also visited Wigtown, awarded “Scotland’s book town” title. I must say that I was disappointed as I expected it to be like Hay on Wye, not nearly so good! However, I did find a pack of six Eagle comics from 1991. My daughter wants to cover a table with decoupage using Super Heroes comic strips. I’m not sure that I bought the right Super Heroes but it was good fun reading the comics. Flash back blues to when my sons were young and into Super Heroes.
