Elvaston Castle is one of those places I've always loved. I used to visit Elvaston all the time when I was little, and it will always be special to me. It's a beautiful, peaceful place and it's perfect for a quiet walk. Unfortunately, the castle was undergoing maintenance and the scaffolding ruins a few of these photos, but I think you can still see how tranquil it is. Some of you may remember that I've posted about Elvaston Castle before here.
My favourite part of Elvaston is the lakeside walk. It's incredibly serene and it was surprisingly empty. We did meet a cute little squirrel who became quite attached to my sister after she started feeding him crisps (I was not aware that squirrels like crisps). Some of the flowers were spectacular, and seeing everywhere in bloom is my favourite aspect of summer.
Today is testament to the fact that I should truly make more of an effort to visit places with my camera, because I had forgotten how much I love exploring even familiar places with my camera. I'm hoping to get out and visit a few more places before summer is over and university begins! I also graduate on Wednesday so I'm hoping the sunshine lasts!
