Did you see the Series Finale of “Downton Abbey” last night?
Everybody gets a happy ending. Yay.
Then we wake up Monday morning and it’s back to Trump and Hillary, etal. Yuck.
I thought I recognized the location that was used for “Brancaster Castle” – the sprawling estate that the Granthams visited to meet the mother of Edith’s finance, Bertie, aka the “Marquess of Hexham.” The location is Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, England. I haven’t been there but I did recognize it immediately as a location that also served for some scenes of ‘Hogwarts’ in the first couple of Harry Potter films.
The whole subject reminded me of my travels in the UK and I took a look for the first time in quite a while at the slide show I made of some of the photos from the trip that I took there in 2013 (when I discovered the whole “Portals of Stone” thing).
It’s making me want to go back again in the spring…. <*sigh*>
