Curwood Castle - Lights at Night

A stop in my old hometown provided me with a chance to drive by and once again admire Curwood Castle. This pretty structure sits beside the Shiawassee River in the city of my origins. I can remember visiting the castle with my mother when I was a little girl. The building housed the superintendent’s office and my mother stopped in to discuss a school concern with him. I was so impressed; with the castle, the river, and with the superintendent’s large desk in his office. When I was bigger, I attended Junior High on the opposite shore. Later the superintendent’s office moved to a larger building, they built a a footbridge across the river, and the castle became part of the park system with tours of the castle. I don’t think I’ve ever participated in the tour but on this lovely summer evening I enjoyed a stroll across the footbridge and the beauty of the castle bathed in lights. I’ve seen so many places over the last year, it was rather fun to experience being a tourist in my own hometown.
