(Getting creative - a mix of the words vacance & congé I thought up - both mean holiday)
Boy, have I been active lately!!! Didn't even find the time to write anything - the evenings I would just slump into my pillow and drift off to dreamland.
The reason for that was mainly because mon homme came to visit me for a whole week and I was in bliss. We did so many things, like visiting
>> Batz sur Mer , which was beautiful and calm, with lots of old houses along the cliffs and lots of old people taking a walk or jogging along the coast.
Retirement here we come!!! ☺
|Near~ Far~ Whereeever you....oops, getting a bit corny here|
We also went to Chateau Brissac, which had a beautfiul park and is still inhabitated by its owners today.
It is also apparently the highest castle in the Loire Valley. I was very proud of myself, because I understood most of what the pretty guide was saying ❤ The ancestors were all very different characters, one room was stacked with a hundred antlers, because one of the Marquises of Brissac had been a fervent huntress. I loved hearing about the Marquise Jeanne Say, she enjoyed singing and entertaining people so much, she even built her own theatre. Wish I had that money...
