A Teaser

We've been busy tourists the last few days. Here's a brief list of our activities. Yesterday, the Pont du Gard, a long day trip.

The Chateau du Foix in Foix and the Caves in Niaux, the latter, where you can see 13,000 year old cave paintings and take no pictures.

We had a lovely dinner at the Abbe in Camon. I believe Madeleine is the photographer here.

And of course we've driven hundred of kilometers all over southwestern France and seen the stunning scenery. This is a field of sunflowers, or tournesols, just above Rivel, photo courtesy of Nancy. If we get some more time in the next few days, we'll post more on each of these places.

No wonder we haven't seen you round the village recently. What great travels--and I'm so impressed you climbed to the tops of the towers in Foix.

Peggy said...

Phew, you have been busy. Doug and Nancy are the best tour guides, though I don't think we ever went to the Chateau du Foix. Did we? Next time.

Amy and Dan must be hearing a whopper of a story based on the picture at dinner.

The field of sunflowers is so reminds me of a couple of places we saw when we were in Russia.

Sounds like you've been busy! I enjoyed Madeleine's "guest blogs"...please give her my compliments!

Take care. Catch you later.
