Picking up from the last trip post, we had driven west across the Loire Valley from Paris, veered south to the Puy du Fou theme park. From there we came further south a fair stretch to the Perigord region. Our first stop, for just a few hours to break up the drive to Sarlat, was Brantome, a town of postcard loveliness, circumscribed entirely by a canal. It's just so pretty.
Oh, France. Sigh.
