(Gorgeous Bannerman Castle photo from Tom in Poughkeepsie)

The forsythia is blooming, and Bannerman Castle looked pretty close to this photo when I passed it on the train last week. (The Castle, however, is more of a crumbling wreck, a silhouette in the sky.) I have found that listening to the band Shearwater goes nicely with escaping back into the country, Bannerman Castle on your left. 

Bannerman Castle makes my heart stop every time I see it. The stories! The potential! It’s a gorgeous wrecked little piece of land.
