We went on vacation to the French countryside and stayed
in a medieval castle. Only snippets of this place remain:
- One of the towers had caved in, but you could climb
partway up the spiral staircase hugging the inside of the
curved wall. As you neared the top, the bright sunlight
flooded the ruins and plants grew all around.
- The kitchen was in the basement. It was a large,
dark room of stone blocks. It had no windows.
- If you walked down a path along the right side of the castle,
you came to the corner. Around the corner was a huge green
field of tall grass, absolutely stunning in the bright sunlight.
