The castle at Beauregard.  

The Portrait Gallery with over 300 portraits! We spent quite a while looking at them all and talking about them. (Yes, Monsieur Le Hubby and I are both history buffs. One of the reasons we get along so well together and always have fun on our vacations. Awwwwwww!)

Then I found this one in a room all by its lonesome. Another thing to see is the garden at Beauregard. It's divided into "rooms".

"The Purple Room"


"The White Room" This was the first time I had ever seen WHITE lavender. "The Black Room" "The Pink Room" "The Yellow Room"


Back in Blois.

The Captain on the steps. [Awwwww!]


This is the Cathedral. It is right next to the apartment. (And I mean that literally. From the apartment terrace one can see inside the bell towers!) It also means that every time we go to Blois, we get peeks of church ceremonies, like this bride heading off to get hitched. (And boy, did I feel for her. It was over 30 degrees celsius that day and I bet she was sweatin' in that dress. But doesn't she look fabulous, darling? We thought so, too.)

Blois at dusk.

(This is the view from the terrace of the apartment.)

Monsieur Le Hubby was blowing off the firecrackers we bought at the open-air market while I was waited for the JULY 14 FIREWORKS to begin. Right there by the river is where they set them off. And they're off! Here are a few shots of just a part of the fireworks show...               And then Dany Brillant gave a concert at the bridge. (Psst...I was still knitting here and there!)


I took this as I after a dinner of entrecôte, green beans, potatos, cheeses and ice cream. Oh, and lots of wine.
