What a lovely castle. We were shown how she lived in the castle. How at 100+ she still walked up the front stairs, how she purchased artwork from local artists, made her cook bake a Christmas cake each year for the local public school children, how she had a picnic lunch almost every day somewhere in the local area, and how she entertained guests for dinner.
