Boldt Castle, Heart Island

August 8.

After exploring the children's playhouse on Heart Island, Mom and I headed up toward the main house.  If you could call it a house.  It really is a castle!



The pool room.

The ballroom.


Dining room.

Butler's pantry.


Pool room.

A sitting room/salon.

George Boldt's bedroom.

Louise's bedroom.


On these upper levels, outside the rooms, we walked around the hallway and admired the Tiffany dome.  The pictures obviously don't do it justice.

Walking back downstairs to the main foyer.

I sat in the middle of the stairs for this shot.  :)

We wandered a bit outside...


Railing detail.  I so love this!

The dovecote.



Occasionally, we saw a large ship go by.

Time for a selfie with the main castle in the background!


The power house.


View from our boat back to Alex Bay.

We rounded out our day with a nice meal at Riley's By the River.  What a great day spent together!


Back to life,
Christine
