D and I went for a visit in the country when I first arrived here. We went and stayed at his Mothers house while they were away to the mountains. While we were there we went up to the town nearby called Moirax.

Standing in the center of this town is a church that is approximately 1000 years old.

Now I don't know about you but I have never been inside a building that old. Where I'm from they don't make them that old ^__^ Next to the church is an old abbey and a huge courtyard between the two.

I really enjoyed my visit and just love the architecture. I think this is when it finally started sinking in. Yes Diane, you are FINALLY in France!
BTW~ I took a lot of fabulous pictures while I was there but D has put Linux (Ubuntu ) on the comp. Since he has done that all my pictures show up in their file as being right side up, but half of them when loaded are sideways. I cant for the life of me figure out how to turn them right side up. Damn I miss windows sometimes. I wouldn't even have to think about it then, it would take 2 seconds. >.< So...sorry but you're left with the ones that loaded right side up.

  1. Looks beautiful! I'm from Australia and we dont do that old either! I just found your blog. I've only been here 3 months and it took a while for it to sink in that I was here too. Good luck with learning french :)

  2. Looks good. Have found you cos my name is Moira and one day myself and my daughter were looking through the atlas for places that were our names. Its fun to do. . . She has an island in the sechelles and a town in America! Will definately visit one day. Good luck in France. I am very jealous cos it is a beautiful country.
