In England or Patagonia.. I like your landscape shots! Has this Croft family something to do with the Croft Port wine in Portugal??

Rather too risqué for Photoblog Marilyn.

Now this is very personal to me! I had a boyfriend for several years who was of the Croft family - his mother was sister of Lord Croft. Although the property was owned by NT, the family kept a wing for their personal use.
We used to drive down to Croft for the weekend, and sleep in an ancient four poster bed (I have photographs to prove this) It was fun exploring the castle, including going up on the roof and down into the cellars. I remember a beautiful clock tower in a courtyard. A great experience to see how the other half live, (or maybe the other 3%) but not one with which I ever felt at home .
By the way, I think you will find it is in Herefordshire, not Shropshire.
