American Castles

the Hudson River Line is one of the prettiest 
train rides I have ever experienced
(and I took a train through Wales). 

About midway on the ride,
Bannerman's Castle appears from nowhere
astonishing new riders and small children alike.


Hudson- On the train to Bard


It's only a castle in that it has crenellations 
and is made of stone
(It was actually a military surplus warehouse-
it housed 30 Million 
surplus Munitions Charges),
and a Scottish guy lived there.

It still inspires me
and is what I think of as the castle
on the Iron Islands
when I read A Song of Ice and Fire.
