... Dustin is away at a conference so just Carly and the kids here. The place is heaven for the kids. They enjoyed running around picking and eating raspberries and blackberries and checking out the spring water swimming pool (complete with 18 degree water and frogs) until almost 10pm.

Argh what a fun day. Have been saving up my visit to the medieval citi of Carcassonne because they are having a medieval festival this weekend. Up relatively early, pack my bag because I'm staying the night. I hit the road by 10 and arrive a bit after 10:30. The place is buzzing, people and cars everywhere. Finding a parking spot is the challenge. I want to explore the town first before I head up the hill to the citi as that's where my motel is, 200 metres from the citi. The town is ...
