Just kidding! I can never get tired of the amazing historical sights to see in France.
As we were driving back home through a small village, I had one of those moments where I was reminded of a different small village and good times we had spent there. I just thrill to the idea that this is where I live now.
Will it grow old or be outweighed by the amount I miss my sons and parents back home? It is harder with travel limited and knowing that I can't see my family if I want to.
Today's adventure took us to a former Cathar castle down near Perpignan. You can find a link to the website in English here.

|Looking for a room with a view?|
|Selfie with the view behind us.|
|Plenty of air inside the castle.|
|Goofy selfie -- just us standing out as Americans|
|Something divine inside the cathedral|
|The soaring vaulted ceiling of the chapel|
She asked our nationality and I told her American, but that we lived in Quillan.
|Wind-blown but enjoying the sunny day|
|We could see for miles and miles and miles and...|
We followed the chateau visit with a picnic in Cucugnan in the shadow of an old moulin, with a stop at the bakery underneath the windmill for some cookies for dessert.
More adventures to come!
