Still continuing the great tour!! Who's looking after the dog. Boom & gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Historical as well as newer buildings in France possess such incredible charm, don’t they? I enlarged the tower to see who was in there and found what seems to be a couple of statues frozen in time. :)

Beautiful buildings from France. You seem to spend much time there :) And I can see why, beautiful landscape, castles and lovely old towns and houses...Have a nice week!

I do love your posts from France -- another one of my favorite places and I'm so glad I was able to spend some time there when I was living in Europe! Your photos are superb as always! Hope you have a great week, Kay!

Oh! I do love the charming atmosphere in this historic old city - the detail on the facade of the theatre is exquisite!

Karen said...

Loving the tour of France you are taking us on Kay!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yes, I am aware of the hanta virus scare, my brother lives in rural BC, and had a quite a problem with deer mice.

I especially love that bell tower. I wonder if it rang while you were there and if those statues moved. :-)

Mr Puddy said...

I do have a same thought as Gattina, The old station look stunning !!!

France is a special place but don't tell the French that I said so. I wouldn't like their heads to get any bigger.

Wren said...

Nice to see a part of France that's new to me. Your post gives a sense of the place and of its history.
