Journal - Church of St. Peter, Frassinet, France
This church was located across from the convent where our workshop was held. The bells chimed the time each hour and each half hour -- with an extended 'song' at noon and 7 am and 7 pm. I LOVED hearing those bells.
The church tower was chock-full of pigeons that would circle the church throughout the day.
The entire view -- including pigeons -- reminded me from scenes from Mary Poppins!

One of the many highlights of my France trip was a visit to Pech Merle Caves. These caves featured stalagmites and stalactites over 2 stories tall and true, actual cave drawings done 230,000 years ago.
Please see http://www.pechmerle.com/english/introduction.html for information and google Pech Merle for more images. Since we couldn't take photographs, we created our own 'cave paintings' when we returned to the studio. FUN!

St. Chamarand, France - This chateau bed and breakfast was across the small street where we feasted on an incredible picnic (food photos coming) and plein air painting afternoon. The kind woman who owned the beautiful chateau came over to us and invited us to use her facilities since there weren't any in the area. Very thoughtful! The chateau is also used for weddings and large events.
