The third image in this small series captured around the famous Rochester Castle shows a small opening in the castle wall which leads into the castle grounds. "I found it rather appealing hence the photograph"

Thank you to you all for taking the time out to view and comment on yesterdays upload 'Leafy Lane'

Today I shall be trying to sort my external hard-rive out as it decided to play silly buggers yesterday. This may take some time, as I have got to back up all my files in the process 'great'.

Well I shall write off for the time being, catch up with you all later 'hopefully'

I hope that you all have a great day, and before I go "does anyone know the whereabouts of Mike (Rusty Fella) nice chap?"...

Certainly worth a picture, Nathan. I love the simplicity of this, and yet there is much to take in, especially the different stonework and textures.
It's a bit worrying about Mick, but I have no idea where he is.
