Sometimes it feels like we're living in the middle of a film set, what with three locations used by Starz in recent weeks in the fields around chez nous. Recently I stood in on a small scene being filmed between Claire and Laoghaire in an avenue of trees. Not sure that one was in the books, but I'm sure all will be clear when it's aired! Anyway, here's a rain-stops-play photo from another local location.
If the scene is broadcast before the tour season, then I'll add it to the tours this summer.
The "avenue" location is one that's been part of our tours since the beginning and will be of course part of this summer's tours.

We've been away on a scouting trip for the Dragonfly tour next year. We've been in Versailles and Normandie. Here's a few wee photos to whet your apperite for nexxt July, those who are coming along.
Here's a few from the Abbey, so like the one that Jamie recovered in. It's still a working abbey, with brothers and it's own Saint Anselm.
A wee Bayeux-by-night shot. Quite a spectacular place.
We were joined for some of the trip by Robert and Theresa, from the Grain tour a few years back. Remember them? They're the ones that drank all the wine. Nothing's changed and they brought us some lovely grape to try.
Robert enjoying the port we'll be visiting next year.

Just got back from France and a scouting trip for the Dragonfly in Amber tour next year. Thought I'd post a few images we made along the way to pique your interest. Here's the first: "Bayeux by night". More to follow when I get done with all the responses to those of you who have already booked. Thanks! Makes it all worthwhile!
