I was invited out for a mini-adventure with a friend and her kids. And as you know, I can rarely turn down an offer for an adventure! So, it was off to Blackness Castle we went. It was the first visit for my adventure partners, but I was going back to someplace I’ve been before.
I was first at Blackness Castle with my Mum as part of her first visit to Scotland in 2010. But I am certain that I have been back since then. Only I can’t quite remember when it was or who I was with. Maybe it’s a false memory? I don’t know.
But I do know that I went back to Blackness this week. And I know that it was a lot of fun because I was there with my young friend, O, who I’ve had many mini-adventures with over the years. (Including this one, this one, this one, this one, and this one!)
O and I had great fun running around the castle to complete the quiz. We counted the number of gun holes the fortress had – and we counted fireplaces and bolts and even the number of bridges we could see from the top of the tower. It was, as always, a great day out!
The best thing about going back to Blackness, however, was that it reminded me of my Mum, and it made me that much more excited about the adventures we’ll have together when I’m home to visit in August! (I really can’t wait!)
Stay tuned for more summer adventures…
