T Stands for .....

Hi everyone, the insulin supplement to my meds is slowly kicking in and at last my glucose levels are falling! After a visit to the opticians this morning I am also happy to report that the early signs of cataracts that I had last year haven't got any worse.

I tried to get to everyone last week but there are some blogs not letting me comment again - hoping Mr Blogger lets me in this week!

So, back to France.

I forgot to mention the chateau we visited on the Sunday afternoon.

Spoilt slightly by standing in the sun listening to the owner relate the (not very exciting) history of the chateau for nearly an hour. We watched others wander off to the shade of the surrounding trees and I'm afraid that's what we did too

The chateau is now a hotel and has some lovely features
...and great views

The Breakfast room was a lovely bright room

The next day we set off to travel South to our son's place in a little hamlet, south of Limoges. We stopped off in Rochechouart. 

We arrived at the Manoir then decided to go out for a meal at a place we had been told about right by Hautefort Chateau.
The food was delicious.

As you can see we drank water and this is my ticket to T Stands for Tuesday at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog The Altered Book Lover.
Poor hubby had to bend his head so I could get him in the photo

This is hubby's dessert with the name of the restaurant written in chocolate sauce.

Thanks for looking, Chris

What a really lovely little town Chris. And a lovely chateau hotel too. Isn't it fun to make discoveries when you travel? (and in art too.) I'm glad to hear your new meds are helping. And I hope you had a super T day. hugs-Erika

I'm delighted the meds are working well and your cataracts are not any worse.

Of course, I was impressed with all the photos of that chateau, but the copper cabinet was what truly caught my eye.

Your desserts look like miniature works of art. They are beautiful and I love there was chocolate for the name of the restaurant.

Thanks for sharing more lovely photos from France, your desserts, and your water with us for T this Tuesday, dear Chris.
