It seems when we visit Uncle Spike Adventures, we find ourselves exploring the terrain on the other side of the world (for the Orples and me). Oscars learned his lesson the last time, he and Olivia were exploring ruins when we visited with Madhu. Remember, he’d forgotten is binoculars? Well, this time around, Oscar remembered to bring a camera, so he and Olivia can take some selfies in these magnificent ruins.
Since I can’t cyber-transport myself like the Orples can do, I may as well cruise through the neighborhoodand re-visit some of our past adventures. Please feel free to join me.
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 neighborswith me to see what you may have missed in the recent past.
