We moved up here to Washington almost 4 years ago now so there are still a lot of things around here that are new to us. We'll drive by different places and want to check them out and we've done quite a bit of exploring. But there was one place that just really had us baffled. We'd drive by it on the freeway and always wonder what it was. It was a big, industrial size building with no windows in it. According to the sign, it was called "The Castle." It had an outline of a castle on the sign and under the name it said "Knights and Damsels Welcome." But there was nothing else. We were stumped. It became a thing with us to drive by and wonder about it. Was it a big indoor playground (they have those here in the Pacific Northwest)? Or maybe something like Medieval Times (a dinner and tournament place)? Some big place for reenactments? Yup, it was a mystery.
One afternoon, we were out and about and were in the area of The Castle. We had no pressing engagements, so we decided to solve the big mystery and actually get off the freeway and go see exactly what it is that we were missing. We pulled into the parking lot and got out of the car. I held my daughter's hand as we walked toward the front door and she started asking what the place was. As we got closer to the doors, we saw signs posted... "No one under 18 allowed" and the like. Oh, lovely. We just brought our daughter to an adult store. Not exactly the best idea for a family outing. She couldn't understand why we were leaving before we even went in. I told her I'd explain it to her when she was 40.
