Our Lady Of The Lake.

On a location recce yesterday at the Castle, I looked forward to visiting my favourite place - the Dolphin Pool. Imagine my surprise to find not the resident ducks, but a lady swimming there.
A nymph in a turquoise bathing suit and
black ballet pumps.

When you work for the Castle, you are granted birthday wishes. For her fiftieth birthday this lady requested to swim in the pool and remove all of the rubbish that the South Easter had deposited on the bottom of the pool over the past few weeks.
Cardboard boxes, crisp packets, a milk carton or two...

The other apples of my eye, the giant white horses, were nowhere to be seen.
