What a brilliant day out

Have you ever been to Bolsover Castle? If not, why not?
For many years I've been saying I would go one of these days and I finally went today with my friend Jean. What a fantastic day we had. A wander round the town, then a great pub lunch and then onto the castle. What a great one it is too. Once up in the castle grounds the panoramic views are magnificent. The photographs are still in the camera and I have to get ready to go to band practice soon so I will put a few pics on tomorrow all being well :o) The weather was very kind to us although very windy. We set off from home this morning in pouring rain and wondering if we were doing the right thing. By the time we got to Bolsover it was drying up and then when we went into the pub for lunch the heavens opened and it was coming down like nearly horizontal stair rods and bouncing up off the road. By the time we finished lunch it was drying up again so we were fine. The sun came out while we were in the castle grounds and we never got wet at all! Somebody was taking care of us for sure :o)
