We're in France!

Finally, our delayed honeymoon has arrived!

After something like 16 hours of travel we were picked up at the train station by our new friends (the father of the bride whose wedding we are also here for) and after a nice lunch they brought us to the beautiful converted farmhouse/manor that we'll be staying at.

After a much needed nap, we had our first (of many, I hope) great French meal. For me: wine, salmon carpaccio, bacon-wrapped rabbit with seasonal vegetables, followed by frest strawberries and lemon sorbet. Hard to beat!

Some pictures of the (for lack of a better word) hotel. As usual, click for the big picture.

It was overcast and drizzling a bit, so the pictures are a little dark, but here is my morning cafe au lait.





The Manor House:



And the little chapel:


Until later, I think it's time for a little exploring. And maybe some more wine.

Indeed we were having fun. Too much to keep up with the updates. I'll be putting up pix and maybe some stories as I recover from the jet lag.
