    The history of Charlotte and Doctor McMahon

    The castle of Sully is only 20 minutes from Autun on the route to Beaune.
    It's definitely not one of this gorgeous rich "chateau" but quite low key: nevertheless imposing in the nude simplicity of its main Renaissance facade.
    The guided visit of the apartments is a bit limited - they only show you a few rooms on the ground floor of the north Wing - but they give you a lot of background about the castle architectural evolution and the different families that owned it.
    Built in the 12th century by a knight called "...de Sully", it was then bought in the 16th century by the family Sauvan? that is responsible of the additions in Renaissance style, then again passed on to the Morey brothers.
    The youngest (60 years old!!!) of the Morey brothers set out to find a wife to take care of the property and married the 19-years-old Charlotte Le Belin. But, he fell ill just after she moved in with him and the 3 brothers. He died a bit after leaving Charlotte alone living in the castle with the super old!!! brothers. Oddly (or maybe not) she did not go back home and stayed there and eventually she remarried wirh Dctor MacMahon that had cured his husband during his illness. At the death of "the brothers" she inherited everything! The Mac Mahon family has owned the castle since and opened it to the public recently, probably to cover the expenses of this beautiful - but massively expensive to maintain - property!

    ... day Sunday with coffees and pan chocolar to start the day, buy the cheeses, buy the palma ham, buy the salad ingredients, wonder around the old part of the town, then back to the boat with our loot for lunch. We have managed to put up a canopy (gazebo) over the outside area of our boat, to keep the sun off. We are sitting out there now, writing this blog, and Amanda writing e-mails. So the adventure continues and hopefully so does the bateau. J & ...

    Beaune Day 2

    We started our second day in Beaune with a lovely breakfast before going to the Fallot Moutaderie - the mustard factory. At the factory, Ben saw a stone mustard grinder for crushing mustard seeds. Next we got to make our own mustard by crushing mustard seeds with salt and verjus (which Ben thought smelt like vinegar) in a mortar and pestle. The tour guide said Mummy's mixture was excellent! ...

    In the cold light of the morning, common sense prevails and we abandon the drive down south idea. We are only travelling another short way down the Saone River to Seurre today but first we walk through Saint Jean de Losne to the supermarket near the marina to buy food for tonight. After lunch, sandwiches made with the baguette I bought that morning, we travel for about 2hours down river, part of which is canalised to Seurre. Bruce ...

    ... blog entry, you really have to be careful when you are in the meat department. I passed on the beef tongue today, in spite of it being at rock-bottom prices.

    There are a ton of ruins, including Roman ruins, in Burgundy - so much so that not all of the spots are even marked. While hiking, we – and especially Chip - have happened on the ruins of cities from the first centuries A.D. There might be a small signpost at the ...
