The other day Stan and I headed up to the castle and had a picnic on a lovely bench under a shady tree. The Houdin museum's dragons were working and we got some great photos:
Afterwards we went to tour the Castle Blois and see the exhibit of ancient books (manuscripts) hand painted by "Illuminators" (a.k.a. "illustrators"). Gads, they were stunning.
At any rate, the castle was well worth the visit. Here are some pics:
And hey - we can see our apartment from here! (That's our kitchen window circled in red.)
