Today was an afternoon that was all about exploring nearby castles. We started at Coity Castle, which we ended up having to ourselves for about an hour. THAT was magical and the kids had so much fun. Then it was off to Ogmore Castle, which was actually closed by the time we got there, but that didn't stop us (and others). We spoke to a couple local guys and they said that people are on the castle grounds after closing all the time. Last stop was New Castle, but it was also closed and inaccessible. Ryder humored me with a photo from the outside though. Click images above to enlarge.
