Pictures from my recent trip to France

Here are a handful of pictures from my Chateau trip to France.   Rather than writing lots of words for each picture, they have a short description. I want you to just imagine the places as the pictures go by.

There are many pictures of Castles and Chateaus in the Loir and Lorie River Valleys. Imagine these homes with family and friends being entertained in the grandest of style. Of course, life was more gentile then, but also the rooms were cold and transportation took days. Yes, someone else cooked for the owners but those doing the work did not have such a great life.  It was truly a world of two classes.

Nonetheless, imagine seeing these castles and chateaus through the eyes of your grandchild. They will be so excited to run the halls and climb the stone stairs. They certainly will be able to transport themselves to another time.

Now can you?   Enjoy the pictures and a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Chateau d’Angers on the Loire River. It is now a museum with a Tapestry of the Apocalypse inside. These are huge wall tapestries, about 10 in all.
