I think this barrier had something to do with the costume drama they put on in Valençay's courtyard the day we were there. As spectators, we sat on the steps you see below the windows. When the "play" started, a horse-drawn coach pulled into the courtyard carrying one of the principle players.

Cross this line and you risk being run over by a horse. September2003.

If I remember correctly, the play itself was kind of boring. More of a spoken history lesson than a play. But it didn't go overly long.


  1. It looks as if one of the barrier supports has been run over by something....

  2. Hope you and Ken feel better soon, Walt!

  3. tim, it wasn't me!!

    mitch, the exiting part was when the horse drawn carriage entered the courtyard and did a big circle around the fountain. It was all downhill from there.

    kiwi, thanks!


Tell me what you think!
