Mystic theme - stairs

Looking straight up at the bottom of the stairs above us in a spiral stairwell in Raglan Castle in Wales

These were the actual, very scary stairs we had to use, they look a bit green and potentially slippery!

On our way to St Canice Cathedral In Kilkenny in Ireland, I guess they didn't want people sliding down the banisters…

Climbing the rickety stairs up the centre of the tower at St Canice. The Round Tower is the oldest standing structure in Kilkenny. You can get great views of the city (weather permitting, we were very lucky). St Canice’s Round Tower is one of only two Round Towers that people can climb in Ireland.

The stairs going to the beach at Wilderness on the garden Route in South Africa, going down first thing in the morning is all very well, you are fresh and eager and have a lovely day on the beach to encourage you, coming back up in the afternoon is a bugger, you are usually hot and tired, the sand in your cozzie invariably chafes, the kids are whining and the stairs go on forever!

Great set that Welsh tower reminds me of the Scottish Glenfinnan one where I spent my honeymoon not in the tower LOL but opposite it .
My sister climbed it one year and was pretty scared and I coincidentally phoned her at that moment.

Around and around and around ....those stairs seem to go on forever in #1 and #2. You are very brave to tackle them. I do like the stairs to the beach and as you say they must be a bugger to climb. Wonderful set of stairs Ann!
