The Orples Visit The Ruins of Kerak Castle in The Middle East.

You know when Madhu gets theurgetowander, she wanders into some fascinating places.  Along the way, Madhu takes breathtaking photos, and in many cases (such as this), includes a wonderful, informative history of her subject matter. Today we are visiting the ruins of The Castle Kerak and learning of its thousand (plus) year history.   I am always amazed at the number of people who have died fighting over power and land. At the moment, I am hoping Oscar doesn’t fall over the side and perish with some of the poor souls who fell victim to the King’s wrath somewhere along the way.

Olivia was smart enough to bring binoculars and she is willing to share.  I suspect, once Oscar regains his nerve, the Orples will be spending more time admiring the scenery.

If you get tired of waiting for the Orples, come visit our neighbors with me to see what you may have missed in the recent past. :)

    1. Hi Cindy. :) Madhu included a really informative history of these ruins with a number of other photographs on her original post. I learn a little something every time I visit her blog. :)

    1. Olivia is a good friend to have. Had it not been for her, Oscar would have ended up being the subject of Mr. Zimp’s experiments. She’s been his savior right from the start.
