Hat Trick!!!

The nearest sizeable town to Giverny is Vernon, which lies along the banks of the Seine . Full of lovely old buildings and also home to Chateau de Bizy . The Chateau is surrounded by lovely parklands But what really caught my eye was this

Up !!

And Down !!

This view could be seen from the front terrace of the house, through the windows , across the inner courtyard and through the archway in the stable block - all in a completely straight line!!!

The Chateau is privately owned and, according to our guide, suffered a lot of damage during WWII and is still being renovated - that has to be a labour of love!!!

I really think that's it for today folks, time to turn my thoughts towards the more mundane like cooking dinner !!!
