Château de la Roche-Jagu

Raph and Camille left Saturday taking all the young children of the house (age ten-year-olds: Olivier, Christine, David, Susanne, and Amos) on one of their wonderful exploratory trips in Brittany.

Took bad I'm over the age limit; I'd love to go one day!

Yesterday Raph sent us back this photo of a place called the Château de la Roche-Jagu which Wikipedia tells me is an old castle built overlooking and for the defence of the river Trieux, right near the coast.  It is a medeaval fortree, being finished in 1418 and has been under the protection of the Historic Monuments Commission since 1930.

If you can spot Christine in the foreground near the wall you'll get an idea of scale of that wall!

  1. And--for those of you who haven't seen Christine lately--she's growing fast and only a little more than a head smaller than Mommy now, so that is quite a tall wall !
