This is getting -4. Someone posted a similar one recently, but it's not the same. I already had that photo, and I told the poster I would post mine later.

The centrepiece of Hatley Estate is a magnificent 40-room replica of a 15th century Edwardian castle. It was built in 1908 for James Dunsmuir, a coal and rail baron who also served as Premier and Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia. Over the years, the grand family home was frequented by socialites, gentlemen farmers, business leaders and visiting royalty. In fact the gardener, Ishiburo Kishida, the individual who designed the Japanese Gardens at Hatley Park, was also responsible for the beautiful Japanese Gardens at the world renowned Butcharts Gardens. The property was eventually sold to the federal government in the late 1930s with the understanding it would always be used for educational purposes. It became Hatley Park National Historic Site. It is located in Colwood (in Greater Victoria), British Columbia. It is the site of Hatley Castle and Royal Roads University (formerly the Royal Roads Military College). The historic site is home to trails through mature stands of first and second-growth forest, including large Douglas-fir and western red cedar.
