Global Currency on BACK Porch



We much preferred the villages to Paris. Life seemed to move a more human pace. This heah baby sharing a sip of spring water wif her dawgy.


A manor house--still lived in by the family that came heah 330 years ago...

An abbey that engineered an inventive hydraulic system to irrigate hundreds of acres...


Food reviews and French polly ticks coming next....stay tuned!

Loved the Abbey...actually loved them all.
Does the Abbey still use the hydraulic system for irrigating the acreage?
And why oh why do I not live where cross barrel vaulting is the norm? Clearly my delivery stork didn't have GPS!
