    your photos are astoundingly beautful!

  2. Hello Andrea,

    I noticed a new follower and came to visit and who did I find - YOU!

    You tell beautiful photo stories with your camera and God's word. Just lovely.

  3. Hey cousin, thanks for taking a peek and your kind words. I am still pretty new at this but having so much fun.

  4. Great shots. I'll bet there is a lot of history behind those doors and turrets! Have you been inside?
    The scriptures fit so well with the photos.

  5. Yes I have been inside, Linda. Went there last summer with my sister and brother-in-law. I emailed you a link to my photo album of the 1000 Islands/Boldt Castle Cruise.

  6. Dear Andrea, I have been searching for a copyright free castle with turets for my first attempt at a devotional. Do you own these photos? How may I get permission to use one of them? Thanx for considering. Lord bless you. Jeanne Zaugg
