@Emma G: Thanks Emma ! Yes you are correct - each section had dozens of people (getting in my way - just kidding) so I paced around to get the shots. I tried not to get too involved with the camera, and be grandpa with Gabby. but, got a few lucky shots.. Have a very nice day !!

Hello my friend John ! following you.... floor by floor (to day the first one...). What a wonderful Castle, so well kept and lovely furnished.
