Of Mountain Views and Stone Tunnels
As a kid, I dreamed of living in a castle. I loved fairy tales and Guinivere and fairies, a romantic and air-brushed version of medieval life in the country.
Imagine how I felt when I first saw a modern stone castle just minutes from where I live - then multiply that by a thousand when I found out it has a two hundred foot long underground stone tunnel!
Maybe it's the stone. There's something really comforting about stone - it creates an instant sense of stability, a "Don't worry, we'll be okay through anything."
