A Medieval Castle in France






The next morning we headed "tout droit"......
By late afternoon we found our next chateau....a true medieval castle out of a historical novel!
It was amazing!
Turrets and a working drawbridge, thick stone walls and small little slit windows for the archers to defend the castle from seige.
We were transported back hundreds of years when knights and their ladies crossed this ancient drawbridge.

It is such fun to see some of the places you and Phyllis discovered. It must have been great to travel with a good friend...especially Phyllis.
I love the Little Princess Mouse.
