... castle stands from the 12th century, really amazing and it's so much fun listening to Ella's take on it all (Why is it broken, HOW old, can we show Gma and Pa).

When the meal began we had mini quiches as the 'aperitif', then a selection of cold seafood including prawns, sea snails and crab claws.
