Life at the castle

I’ve been on a short and well deserved break last week, took the boyfriend and kids out to a castle in the beautiful French ‘Pays de Loire’ .

Swimming, reading, and enjoying the lovely French wines of the region is what we did.

Of course I did some drawing as well..

On the way home through France just below Lyon, our next stop. Mountains fading in the distance.. Smell of fresh summer rain washed away by the strong sun.
