A Castle or a Haunted House?

Some of you may remember that a few weeks ago I rode the Amtrak for the first time along with my mom to visit my daughter April. April loves to explore anywhere she lives and she finds the best things in each city. For example, the Hilmar Cheese Company and the Yogurt Mill.

She also found this haunted house...creepy isn't it? I thought it would be perfect for the week before Halloween. This is actually not a haunted house at all as you will see in the next few pictures. It's actually a house someone built to resemble a castle! Complete with moat & drawbridge! I had to take a picture. I got this picture by using some of the Scripting Tools in my Paint Shop Pro program. Neat-o huh?

Here's the actual house without the trickery in the one before it. Isn't it just as neat-o?

Just as I was snapping these photos the owner came home and parked their car in the garage. I was hoping she/he wouldn't be mad at me, but when you purposely build a house this beautiful you have to know that people are going to stop and take pictures. I mean everyone travels around with a camera in their purse don't they? I know I do!

Thanks for stopping by, be sure and comment and let me know what you think of my haunted house!
