While Bryant and kids have been canoe camping, I explored a tourist town nearby. The season ends with the start of school so I mostly enjoyed the scenery. 30,000 steps worth!
Magpie Inkcap fungus, a few of the many kinds of mushrooms I saw in the beech forest.
The ruins of a 13th century castle made for an interesting morning.
And the new sheriff’s residence, built beside the one that was destroyed to prevent invaders from making use of it.
There’s even a moat, formal gardens and “modern” outbuildings from the early 1800’s. The king would have had a fantastic view of the bridge!
Only parts of the church remain from medieval times.
And I checked on the moon jellies before heading back to Hotell Edgar.
Quite a fancy train station, still very much in use. Trains are frequent and I found myself with groups of pedestrians waiting to cross the tracks several times.
This photo is from the stairs that cross above the tracks. We had lovely fall weather and the campers are star gazing tonight.
I’ve been trying to block out news but the hotel owner is from Canada, and he wanted to express his sympathy for America’s great loss. He is a big RBG fan so there was no avoiding the sad news.
This was one of my favorite photos from our visit to the National Portrait Gallery.
