At last my feet have finally touched terra firma after our wonderful French holiday and I have been able to process a few more pics.
We started our holiday in the Loire valley with one of our daughters and her family, and here they are minus big brother, who thought it would be far too boring to come with us, so stayed behind, girl watching with his cousin.
We spent a lovely day at this chateau, which was completely unsupervised and relied on trust that visitors would be respectful. As a result we had an amazing insight into life as it would have been lived in the 17oo’s.
In the attic rooms we found a beautiful old school room which kept the youngest member amused, even if we did think the hat might mean something to do with bad behaviour. I was also lucky enough to spend my actual b/day on holiday, so of course we had to have a champagne celebration. And presents.
local village with lots of lovely art/craft shops but they were mostly shut as it was Thursday………….. shame.
And then there was my summer residence to visit of course. I wish.
How about these lovely curtains, they’re all over the region, but these were behind coloured glass, beautiful.
Finally before we left we popped into the village church and were stunned to find these amazing wall paintings.
I’m trying out Windows Live Writer for the first time, so I’m hoping it will publish this post Ok. It’s nice to see how your post looks with the pics and i think it’s a bit quicker too.
