The castle was fascinating to see and the tour was great. The third floor was frightening and haunted too! The tour guide was nice and gave all a wonderful tour. I was scared on the 3rd floor and wouldn't go all the way in to the top room.. I hid behind a woman I didn't even know and watched as she walked around the room. Then I decided it was NOT for me...then I exited quickly although I did try try to remain calm in front of the small children and I waited my turn to walk down the stairs even though my inclination would have been to scream loudly and push everyone out of my way so I could get out fast. But I didn't, I remained composed while on the inside, my heart was pounding. That's what makes this so special, we love to be scared!
Most everyone was in costume which was another fun thing to see. Kaylee was the only dog there and she had a marvelous time. She was not even slightly bothered by any of the goings on that day and she loved all the attention.
Thanks to the Keeping it real women's group for putting this on.
