Wordless Wednesday: Hammond Castle

Recently I discovered Wordless Wednesdays through the blog, 5 Minutes for Mom. Basically, on Wednesdays all around the Internet, bloggers post their favorite photos, ideally without any words to accompany them, but often with just 1-2 sentences of context. I’m not a photo-blogger. I’m more of a word girl, so I thought Wordless Wednesday would be fun.

Over Spring Break, The Five-Year-Old and I visited Hammond Castle, a medieval-style castle built by John Hays Hammond in the 1920s. I’ll tell you more about our visit next week (on some day that allows words).

About Shala Howell

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.

  2. Hm, it looks a little cold there! Having grown up in MA, I’ve never visited – it seems very interesting!

      Thanks for stopping by. I think it’s definitely worth a visit, especially if you happen to be in the Gloucester area anyway. I first learned about it in one of those “8 underappreciated museums in MA” articles that pop up on FB now and then. The Five-Year-Old is always up for an unusual adventure, so off we went. I’ll post more pictures from our trip next week.
