Dundurn Castle and Bayfront Park

I've decided to pick a fairly well known desitnation for my first Explore Hamilton Adventure. Dundurn Castle is featured on almost all Hamilton's tourism literature and promotion posters of all kinds. Everyone has been there at one time, most commonly for School Trips. No matter how well known it is, it is still pretty spectacular to me. Such crazy architecture, and many say it is haunted by Sir John A. Read up about one Dundurn Castle haunting story at Haunted Hamilton, Read with the lights on.
The pictures aren't anything fancy, just random things that caught my eye.

This is a weird path that leads to the edge of the cliff, it's fantastic.

This is the same fantatic path, looking back at the castle.

The main entrance to the castle. Very nice, very Greek.

Not quite tall enough. Those arches are neat, we should have those all over the city.

I love the weird Architecture of this entrance, looks like something you'd find in Belaurs or Georgia in the former USSR.

This is the top of that neat entrance. I found out from some weird old lady that those are "pigeon homes".

This is the door to this crazy entrance. The best door I've ever seen. I wasn't able to find out the story about that head above the door. Maybe one day..

A plaque..

My slightly slanted view of the castle.

Bayfront Park - I love going for walks there.

This is the view of the park from the fist picture - that clif path. I went on a hiking adventure down to those trains with roger a few years ago, it was super creepy. I like to call that the 'train cemetary', Too bad we didn't have a camera.

The entrance to the park.

Frozen Lake. Too bad I didn't get there a few weeks earlier so that I could have walked on the ice. The cracking sounds of the ice breaking kept me away from that today....

The park is filled with these charming 'old country-esque' bird feeders. In the background, the boats are wrapped up for the winter.

I am very excited about this new project..very excited! Special thanks go out to Rog for helping out with the pictures and to Caleb from New York City Walk for the inspiration.

Make sure that you're using clean towels and clothes.

What makes this kind of bag I'm covering stand out from the 10,000 other bags in Paris, is this can be a prototype backpack.

Cook says Jacobs knows what he's doing: "He makes 'editorial' bags that the magazines will talk about after which he can sell a normal bags based about the hype.
