This morning we begin to get organized to pack and move on. Carolyn fixes breakfast, the last of the tuna sandwiches for a picnic and does one last load of wash...she has finally mastered the strange little washer. Dick stars gathering up all the electronics and camera stuff and putting it in the bags.
About 11 we head to Verdun to get a neat little souvenir we saw at Fort Doumont the other day. On the way we spend time checking out a couple of the small villages within a couple of KM from the cottage. The cottage is actually on the outskirts of Boureuilles so that is our first stop. Each village has its own little church and the Marie, the home of the city hall and the primary school. These building are usually very attractive. We fine them most interesting. Our own little cottage is just down this tree lines road that runs in front of the church and Marie.The house is at the dip in the distance.
The last nine days in our little corner of France have been delightful. This is our second time to spend a week or more in a rural part of Europe and it was just as nice as the first time. We will definitely do this again...maybe Germany next.
