Day #5
We started the day in the little village Lavardin.  Classified as "a most beautiful village".  Linda has a of list of them and we always try to add a few to our sightseeing!  We came here mostly to see  the roman style Church of Saint Geneste.  The church dates to the 1000's and the frescos done between 1100 and 1600's!  Can you imagine the age!!  We were the only ones there.

We then went into the city of Blois.  We met our tour guide Fabrice who took us on a walking tour around the city.  He was an excellent knowledgeable tour guide. We asked especially to see Church Saint Nicolas and it was off the beaten path but worth the walk.  Look at the light coming in the windows!

Show update:
We were in Saratoga Springs, NY over the weekend.  Well it grew a lot from what we remembered 20 years ago.  We connected with a few past clients but overall I would say the show was more of a "happening" than big sales. although the work was all very good.  Seemed like every other person in my booth "paints"!  I may try it one more time just to see if I can grow it.  We camped...  the campground was awful.   The bathhouse was super filthy, and Linda refused to go in.   Do NOT use Lees Park under any circumstance!  We need to find a better campground in the area!  We got home around 5pm to unpacking and laundry.  So no Monday blog.
