Swallow's Nest Castle


A decorative castle built in 1912 upon a 130 foot cliff, the Swallow's Nest Castle is located in south Ukraine. A Neo-Gothic design by the Russian architect, Leonid Sherwood. An observation deck provides a view of the sea, and Yalta's distant shoreline.

Can you imagine yourself here for a visit?

Kerri,
Isn't that the most beautiful picture? I would love to take a visit here. The girls saw a few castles on their trip to Europe. The building itself is amazing, and the view is gorgeous. Hang in there with the new year. I hope it gets better for you.

A visit? I can imagine myself living there as a young girl awaiting my prince charming. Dressed in a stunning gown, probably a soft pink and tiny baby pink roses in my hair. I would be up in my room at the window overlooking the deep blue sea. But how will he climb this cliff? Oh dear! Hugs from worried Lu

Hi Kerri, SO nice to see you and thank you for stopping by the GYB link hop. Yes, we have been friends since the beginning and I am so blessed by your friendship.

Yes, I did the blog change myself a few months ago. You can go to the design page and on the templates, click on customize and from there you can widen, change colors, fonts etc. You will see it as you go along.
For the pics to load when doing a post. Yes, they have had troubles. I figured out a way as you are writing your post, compose and the click over the the html to load pics and then back again. It will work that way and this is what I do. Good Luck sweets. Have Fun.
XO Hugs, Celestina Marie
