“They don’t know how to park around here.”
Gail rolled her eyes. Just like Stella to find something to criticize, instead of taking in the big picture. And this was big! “How old are those?” she pointed at the castle’s remains on the hill. The walls stood sentry still. Empty windows portals to the past.
Mom consulted the guidebook. “11th Century. Even older foundations.”
Gail opened the window. The warm air smelled of old stone and fresh bread.
“Close that thing,” Stella groaned. “It’s probably full of plague.”
“Too late, then. Might as well stop for lunch before we’re dead.”
