As I know the likely hood of me ever being able to spend time at the Castle of Mey are very very slim, I really enjoy seeing the pictures and reading the anecdotes of the Queen Mother's life there. It really sounds like she was right on the money with not only restoring the castle, but turning it from a residence into a home.
It doesn't surprise me that Charles and Camilla make time each year to go and stay there.
“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
― John Lennon
