    A serendipitous moment that I wanted to share even though the photos are blurry. We were driving home this evening following a route that tomtom mapped out when suddenly we were bumping over a cobblestone road and there standing against the darkening sky was this castle! We stopped so I could take a few photos although I knew my camera battery was blinking the red light of death. I had just enough power to take these shots and then it died. I will be back and I will take better quality photos next time lol. But for whatever reason, a serendipitous moment I was meant to experience. I’ll take it :-)

    Whodunnit? The answer is in my blog. I’ll give you three clues: it was a looooong time ago in a room in this very chateau. Find the chateau, find the room, find out whodunnit!
