Castle number 2: St Andrews Castle

I am always amazed as I wonder through the castle ruins that hundreds of years ago people saw the same view of the north sea out of the doorways and that they tread on the same stones.  

The castle is in ruins now, the chapel fell into the sea and the walls have crumbled, but somehow I don't mind.  It lets my imagination rebuild and give life to the historic castle.

Jonah adores exploring the castle and cathedral and he does so with exuberance.  The old stones and broken down walls make perfect climbing apparatus and the nicely manicured lawns are lovely places to run and tumble.

This is the reflection in the castle museum window.  The north sea is behind us.  The blur is Jonah at his one speed - run!
