A Picture is worth…….

We are in Monts, France, in the Loire Valley.  We are staying in an 18C mill (grain) on the River L’Indre.  Our flat overlooks the mill river flow of water.  Water wheels are long gone. This is incredible.  Here are the pics:

Above, we are on the first floor behind the umbrella, looking back to the house from the back yard.

View from the yard, the canoe/kayak we took down river today.

Pic of the mill house from canoe on the river.  Water flows under and between the two buildings. Our place is in the left building.  All three are owned  by our host David and Lise.

Can you believe this?  I can’t.  Villages in France.  Can’t be beat.  It’s wine:thirty.  Bye!
