No, I'm not celebrating being 50yrs. old and living in a castle...I wouldn't mind going back 10yrs and being 50 and visiting a castle! We helped a lovely couple from our Church celebrate being married 50yrs.
Congratulations Cathy and Steve! Their daughter, Andrea, and her hubby, Shawn, threw the shindig and it was really nice. Shawn used to be a chef and he knows how to cook! The food was awesome!
The venue was so pretty.
This cake was beautiful but also very yummy!
We wish these lovebirds much health and happiness! Now I'll get to the castle part. Shawn's parents built this place called: Landoll's Mohican Castle.
As you walk around the grounds, you can see the many lovely cabins, statues, fountains, and sitting areas like this one:
What a great place to sit and enjoy the view. It's very hilly in this part of Ohio. The road to the castle winds and turns through the Mohican State Park and the Mohican river where you'll find lots of tourists enjoying a canoe trip.
Here's an example of a fountain on the property.
Jack can make friends no matter where he goes! After the party was over, Shawn invited us to see the cabin he is building just down the road from the castle. He and his wife live near there too and had these 5 acres just itching for a retreat.
I think this is really more than just a "cabin"..it's really going to be a great place to hang out and enjoy nature and peace and quiet.
This balcony over looks the property.
This view will be stunning come fall! And that's not far off! I'll be excited to see the completed project and of course I'll have to blog and share it with you!
