09 Sep 14. Having been accused by one list member of perhaps stooping to participate in one of our states legalized immoral activities, I feel it necessary to redeem myself with proof of what I spoke yesterday. Troll Haven is a resort activity located near Sequim, WA with access to Discovery Bay and quite near the Straights of Juan deFuca. It is a mystical place with castle, carriage house, trolls, magicians, and other assorted characters. It is not a place for the bargain hunter however; a stay there will set you back some, but for the retreat from all that ails you, this might be just the spot. The grounds are very nice and there is enough to do there to keep you fully occupied for as long as you stay. Most of the area is off limits to those not paying for the visit, so my ability to photograph there was somewhat limited. This is a shot of the greeters in the front entrance of the castle which is heavily landscaped and to my thinking a bit overgrown. You are looking at the left end of the front porch although I doubt that it what it would have been called in Merlin's day. The link I provided above will give you a lot more information about the place, and while I doubt any of us will be visiting there, the details and photos are worth perusing. They apparently do a lot of special events and especially weddings; if a church wedding were not of one's taste, I think this place would be ideal substitute. I'll share a creative image of the castle on Thursday; today's B&W seemed fitting for the theme. Nikon D300s; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 200; 1/250 sec @ f /10.
