Fabulous Fontainebleau.


       It's Sunday so it must be time for another daytrip into the country.  As we head south this time from Gare de Lyon, its destination Chateau de Fontainebleau.  It tends to play the poor cousin to the overly visited and overly gilt Versailles, but we think its a tad more interesting period, being that bit earlier.
      Check out the movie Vatel with Gerard Depardieu (of course he's in it), which is a Castle favorite, for a touch of flavour about this period.

Under a brooding sky.









































This place just feels like home.
