Getting to know Carcassonne

We all slept well after our long day of travel.

Sunday morning we went out for a walk and brunch to explore the city and have brunch at the base of the castle. In the evening we walked to dinner and enjoyed more of the city

Morning view down the main hallway to the courtyard in back of the house

Front entrance to the elegant Maison Juliette

A view of the castle from the old foot bridge across the river. We had a lovely brunch just across the river.

Linda relaxing after brunch in the study, reading tour guides about Carcassonne.

The courthouse district of Carcassonne – walking to dinner

A cathedral detail

Stature of Joan of Arc – this was palm Sunday and someone had left flowers at the base of the statue

We had a very pleasant dinner at Brass Platanes, eating outside in the nice cool Spring weather – very much like California

Walking home we came upon this square with lights on a building

“dancing colors” on the building.

and a fountaine, that Sydney had fun running through, but not getting wet!
