Since we had so much fun on the 4th of July, we decided to take another trip and explore another castle on Saturday. This time, we opted for an intact castle in Skipton. It was absolutely amazing! The Skipton Castle was built in 1090 by a Norman baron named Robert de Romille. The property […]
Alex decided to take on the task of explaining the building (and ruining) of Stonehenge to Hazel. He is using the models in the museum. He *may* add a bit of his personal flare at the end.
