It had been a pretty hot day. We headed back home but stopped so Emily could buy a baguette from one of our favorite bakers.
In the morning we had gone to the charcuterie and purchased many wonderful items. We made a wonderful dinner including escargot.
The meal was one of our favorites so far.
After the Chateau we headed to a small cute village in the hills. It is where the move Chocolat was filmed. It was a sleepy little village, very pretty but very quiet. We had watched the movie a few nights ago, we found the church and chacolat storefront. We also visited the store that makes a local candy only available here.
We finally headed out for our days activities. Along the way we stooped along the Canal Bourgonge had a nice lunch in the shade along the canal.
We then headed on to the Cateau Bussey-Rabitin. He was a scoundrel that made fun of Loius XIV and was put into exile in this Chateau. He spent his days collecting art and making fun of the royal court.
The estate also had really nice gardens including a labyrinth though it was a bit hot in the sun.
Today we had a slow start to the day. I woke up and walk into town to get pastries for breakfast. They were great.
