Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

Snippets from Sarlat ........



Sarlat is a medieval village in the lovely area of the Dordogne
Each morning I awoke to the tolling of bells
from the 12th century Sainte-Marie bell tower.

Peeking out my turrett window I saw gas-lamps
 catching shafts of morning mist
alley-ways golden from the first breath of daylight.

................................

The village didn't waken till a much later hour
time then to mozzie on down and gather up
a few goodies for le petite-dejeuner.

What a beautiful village to wander through whilst its residents sleep.

oh I would so love to be there. I have always longed to stay in a little village in France. We have only visited once a few years ago. I adored it and would love to go back. I can see why you have a thing about France!
I am looking forward to seeing more.
have a wonderful week.

A friend and I were just talking about Untours the other day where you settle into a place and take part in the daily life instead of just a blitz tour. This place looks like a perfect location for such a vacation. Was that little cutie in the upper right corner a neighbor or your housemate? :-)
