Fantasy Castle

This is Grad Predjama, Predjama Castle in Postojna, Slovenia. (Click image to view larger.) At this castle, the Robber Baron held off a year-long siege by escaping to a village in the next valley through the cave for supplies--and then was betrayed and murdered in his own bathroom! There are three layers of caves below the castle and one that goes up. It's a real place, but a sort of fantasy-like place as well. My fantasy would be to spend some time here doing research and exploring and write a children's story set here. For Photo Friday Fantasy theme. (Check out what others have done on this theme!) That's Biker Buddy with the catapult. The catapults were used in the siege. They have jousting here and other fun events. And weddings! (Now there's a fantasy!)

Thanks so much JoAnn, Berrybird, Neva and Gribni for you sweet kind and interesting comments! Gribni, how do I find you?

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Neva, Slovenia is a WONDERFUL place to visit--we went there on our honeymoon!

JoAnn, I am already working on several other stories, so I don't want to start a new one until I finish the ones I am currently working on. My fear is that I will die of old age (or something else) before I get to write all the stories I want to write--or else get Alzheimers and not be able to write anymore.

Hi Mary,
Thanks for your interest again ( the church-ceiling, the red-roof and 'you liked the colour' and the weather- meter)Its more my photography... but I always write something with it...

Well I red somewhere that you write 'now and than' on your Psion, so that will keep your memory up, and why would you get Alzheimer? Are you really thinking that? hope you are kidding me:) Otherwise Plaese write the story soon!!!

JoAn :)

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

I don't mean I'm getting Alzheimer's TOMORROW, but I have other stories I am working on. I can't abandon one for another or I'll never get any done.

My Mom died of dementia and had a brain tumor and I have the same brain tumor, a meningioma.

Would you like to see some of my stories?
