Day Fourteen: Sarlat and Chilling

Today, we decided to do some more exploring in Sarlat. One of the oldest churches in the town was definitely worth a visit, although Samantha was hesitant since the last time we were in the vicinity, there was a major funeral procession. Here Eliza is trying to coax her in:

Unfortunately, my Iphone was not doing the church justice... But here is one to give you an idea:

Eliza compares the comfort of the pew to the seats at Beth El. I think she prefers Beth El...

Extraordinary organ-- known to be one of the most beautiful of the 18th century:

Carving below the organ:

Samantha reading about the church, Eliza taking it all in. We spent about twenty minutes sitting there, chatting about roman numerals, Christianity, Judaism, and why we prefer Target shoes to those at Old Navy.

When we left the church, we were treated to some street music:

After walking around a bit, I bought the girls a sandwich, we grabbed a seat, and lunched en plein air. I introduced them to the concept of people watching. I think they liked it:

After Sarlat, we headed to the grocery store, which is turning out to be a daily event. Next to the store, there is a McDonald's complete with play place. So we played...

Then back home for swim, dinner, and journal writing time. These women take their journal time very seriously...

Decorating the walls with American masterpieces is also a favorite pastime...

Tomorrow, it's back to Chateau Milandes, or as Samantha calls it, Josephine's house, for another tour and a picnic. Hard to believe the trip is more than halfway done!
