Sunday Straphanger Cardiff, Wales

Everywhere we go, my husband makes friends.  Sometimes they speak a different language than we speak.  I don't know why they seem to single us out of crowd.  My husband says it's my fault, that somehow "they" know I'm a good friend.  They follow me and I can't get away!

Peacock at Cardiff Castle.

Climbing The Keep at Cardiff Castle.

Still following me and looking for more snacks! 
My friend was crying she was laughing so hard, because I thought if I gave the peacock a snack it would leave me alone.  Instead we had to disperse and move in different directions to confuse the bird so we could leave the castle grounds and get to the carpark.  My husband tried to deflect and protect me and he told me to make a run for it!  The peacock batted his wings and took a couple of flying leaps, he was not going to let me go!

In the end, I, or my snacks, a magnet to this magnificent bird who was refusing to take "No!" for an answer, at least not in English, finally made it safely out of his reach.

P.S.  The castle is a great place to visit, it's in the center of the city near parks, shopping, restaurants, hotels, museums, venues, etc.

Fun story! It's a good thing he didn't follow you all the way home - they're so loud! I stayed overnight at a zoo for a field trip back in elementary school, and the peacock calls kept me up all night.

Funny! My Hubs is like that...I call him Dr. Doolittle...animals love him!

He had a Very Loud Call! Staying at the zoo must have been fun and sleepless!

Yes, it's weird how they find something they like in a total stranger.

Maybe he liked my American accent!

Great story! Lucky he didn't try to hop in the car with you. Glad you made it out of there safely.

Hello again, I love this story and how lucky to be able to visit castles. Could you imagine living in that place say 100 years ago. Oh, the smells, the memories I could conjure up. TFS, More castles please, I'm a follower and blog hopping today. Cheers

Hi Felicity and Sandy, thanks for laughing with me!

Hi Grace and Chris, thanks for following and I'm returning to follow, too. I'll look for more castle photos. If you lived in a castle, would you be the help or the royal? The politics would keep me awake at nights.
