Castle%2520full%2520shot%2520with%2520fl

The castle stood in our backyard in the Meadowview community of Temecula, California for well over 20 years. As a father, I built that castle for my family of three growing, fun-loving boys, their friends, and the neighborhood. 

It stood approximately 25 feet tall, grass to the tallest spire. It had rounded walls capped with turrets, spired roofs, and a wooden drawbridge. The fortress possessed four levels, two routes of entry, connected with built-in ladders, and hatches.  The surface was stuccoed to match our salmon-colored house.

Alas, in May 2014, because of structural issues, it was pulled down. Thirteen thousand pounds of debris were recovered in the process.

It was a sign of love and exciting childhood. I hope these pictures capture some of the dreams that would occur, on a daily basis in the Lynes family.
