What a day...


What a day!  I took 246 photos and am wiped out.  How cool to walk around in a castle.  The thing that always throws me off is scale.  Some things I expect to be gigantic like the Coloseum and this Castle aren't as big as I thought, but much more maze like.  The doorways and stairs are small and tight.  Super interesting! Castle Beynac sits on top of a high rock cliff and the village climbs up to meet it.  Twisty turning streets that are about five feet wide take you there.  I want to post everything but I've only barely made a dent processing the images.  Sketching was great and I actually drew a crowd a couple of times. Felt a little weird!  More tomorrow. Only four more days til I start on my way home.  Wow.

Ah! Looks fabulous. I'll look forward to seeing more of your photos of this. I've yet to go inside a real castle, and yes, I'm still mystified by scale and scope since I haven't experienced it spatially...

Lucky, lucky girl.
