A castle (or two?) a day...

Our excursion yesterday to the Quillan market was a little disappointing although we did locate a laundromat (there's no dryer at the house and David, the laundry king, is not partial to clotheslines) and I stumbled across my second patchwork store in as many days.

Since we were already on the northern side of the gorge (a very narrow road) we decided to check out Chateau d'Arques - a small but perfectly formed castle:

In the afternoon, we hiked a 7 km circuit track through the forest on the slopes above Axat. Hiking with David, a veritable Eagle Scout, is always exhausting - there are only so many rest stops you can take under the pretext of taking photos - but, unlike our last hike, there were NO mosquitoes.

Bonjour! Loving it so far. Do keep posting lots of photos for those of us who have never been there.

A quilt Shop a day ...could be.....tempting. Enjoy. Alison
