We explored the grounds and houses, and even got to sneak into an undisclosed area, before we heard a strange woman cough upstairs and pretended that she actually lived here. My theory is that she stays up there all day and when the whole place closes down at 5, she comes back down and dances around in the kitchen.

Eternity is in the moment,
This moment will live on.

We took a peak at the wine cellar right before they closed up...
