Getting closer ...

My husband had an appointment in Hertford this morning and I tagged along for the ride.  While he was busy I had a little wander around the town in the hope that I may get another picture for the scavenger hunt. 
As we left the car park we walked past a small toy shop and I immediately noticed this in the window

Then as I was trying to explain to the husband why I was so excited by it, he commented that there was a real castle in the town

See the trouble with England is that we are inundated with castles, but they are all so old that there isn't much left of them to give you a clue that they really are castles!  This one was built around 1066 apparently, hardly surprising that a lot of the walls are missing.
There were a lot of cafes opening up for early morning coffees and teas and I saw this really pretty hand drawn sign

And I almost hyperventilated when I saw this
But then remembered that it has to be a person dressed as a pirate!  Oh well, maybe tomorrow .....

Wow - the old castle is really neat, Deb! I'm smiling thinking about how you are so used to seeing castles that they are no-big-deal, but I'm fascinated by them. You're doing great with the scavenger hunt!
