Eilean Donan Castle – Scotland

I really like this photo and I realize I never posted it!  Good thing too as I wanted to originally post some photos from my recent India trip but other life issues, weather issues, etc prevented me from actually going through all of them.  I have some good stories to share from India but until that I hope you enjoy this lovely photo from … [Read more...]
