We then went to Sarlat and walked through its medieval section. We visited La Roque-Gegeac, believed by some to be the most picturesque part of France. It is lovely. We also drove through Domme and near Castlenaud.
Tonight was the first night we didn’t have a hotel reservation, which turned out to be a good thing since we did not make it to Bordeaux as planned. Third time’s the charm because the first two places were booked. Then…we had a very difficult time finding a place to eat at 9 pm. The local McDonald’s was closed. We finally found a pizza kiosk in the parking lot of a Home Depot-style store.
Dordogne is in “the book.” It is a river with lots of cute and quaint towns on its shores. Andy would have loved some time to fish, but we didn’t build that into the schedule.
