Egeskov Castle

Uploaded: October 10, 2012 07:49:35


This is dedicated to you, my sweet Sister, Laura.
Only an hour's drive from our home.
And it is just one of the castles that I want to show you.
Built in 1554 it is one of the best preserved water castles in Europe.
I'll add an image from the other side.
Have you started packing already? :))

OM Goodness! Let's see...Water shoes, bathing suit, flippers, towel...oh and toothbrush. I'm ready! :)))

SSSister, I am actually so looking forward to coming to see you someday. And this beautiful Castle gives me more to dream about. So, really, should I skip the diving gear for the moat and bring my most elegant dress? We wouldn't want to upset the Queen! :D

I love both pictures. Thank you for the dedication beautiful e-brochure. I wanted to print it out but it would have used two ink jets! Lol :)))) I cannot believe how many Castles you have in Denmark!!! Wow!!! :D

HEHE! I'll use any means to get you here, Sister.
But I think it will be too cold for bathing suit here during the Winter. Bring your finest dress, though. Remember we'll also dine and spend a night at the haunted castle :)
I'll notify the queen that you'll be coming, okay? #10363531

A beautiful old castle Kiki! It looks like something out of a fairy tale!

Ann Coates level-classic October 10, 2012

Wow, I've never ever seen a castle like this for myself, must be quite a sight. A beautiful image here Kirsten. #10364285

Mary K. Robison October 10, 2012

Both shots of this lovely castle are superbly composed, Kiki. And the colors in each capture, depending on the natural light, look so beautiful.
Our closest castle is Sleeping Beauty's in Disneyland, three miles from us. But a modern replica, no matter how attractive, can't hold a candle to the fascinating look and history of castles in Europe. I'd love to see this one. Maybe I can hide in Pom/Laura's suitcase when she boards the plane for your reunion... ;-D #10364583

What the heck...??
Kiki, I commented on this gorgeous castle the same day everyone else did; in fact, I forgot at the time to tell you how cool those topiary shrubs are.

The Finalist stage must have swept past while I snoozed...I guess...that's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
Belated Congratulations on this gem making it to the Finals, my friend!
Try not to work too hard in the coming week! #11047109
