As many châteaux do, especially royal châteaux, Chenonceau has a chapel. On this rainy day back in 2006, there were so few people visiting the castle that I was able to lie on my back on the floor to take this picture. I wouldn't recommend trying that on a normal day.

The chapel at the Château de Chenonceau. March 2006.

My trip to the market yesterday was successful. I got a nice dos de cabillaud (boned cod) for our Saturday lunch. I didn't take any photos, but I think Ken did. He made a beurre blanc sauce with shallots and capers to serve it with. We also had some small steamed potatoes and steamed broccoli along side. A very tasty lunch!


  1. What a great shot. There's a museum in Sevilla where it's recommended (on the audio tour) you lie on your back in the chapel to take it all in.

  2. The camera I am using has a fold out, rotating screen, that makes ceiling shots easy and safe.

  3. Terrific shot. Your lunch sounds great and healthy, too.

  4. Beautiful shot.

  5. Oooh, sounds yummy! And great photo, once again :)

  6. mitch, have you done it?

    travel, my old camera had one, but the current camera doesn't.

    evelyn, delicious and nutritious!

    bettyann, :)

    judy, thanks!

    1. Absolutely. They had given us permission. We weren't the only ones on the floor. And it was worth it.


Tell me what you think!
