Château-du-Loir et ses environs : 2






And so it came time to say a sad goodbye, adieu, farewell and à bientôt.

Thank you Claude and Philippe, we had a ripping time in your lovely town.

We had learned a third language, "Globish" and there were one or two empty bottles to prove it, - and a million memories.

It's always so terrible to say goodbye but we WILL return. There's so much more to learn, - and English phone boxes to get to the bottom of !!

Tomorrow we have an Australian "moment" in France.
Crikey, that strange language. How will one cope ?

The third photo is a door of the old prison of the castle that was destroyed during the war against the English people in the middle age.
The fourth one is a phone boxe given by the town of Westbury twinned with Chateau du Loir.
Merci m.Benaut de faitre connaître
Chateau du loir et ses alentours au monde entier !

Lovely photos. Hang on, I thought, could that be England, in the last photo? No, no, don't be silly, I told myself; that chap's trousers are far too tight! It MUST be France. lol. Glad that car didn't reverse. Eek.

Jolies photos, comme toujours...
Elle est bien la cabine anglaise...

C'est bien la région telle que je la connais avec son ciel un peu gris, ses toits en ardoise, son herbe si verte, ses murs couverts de vigne vierge et son hotel de la gare.

L'enseigne bar-restaurant en plastique orange et marron est typique des années soixante-dix, c'est marrant.

I wonder what the Australian moment will be?

I look forward to coming here every single day just to bathe in the photos....

I love the peculiarly Gallic way the traffic totally ignores the pedestrian crossing.
