Le Louroux

Just about a 20 minute drive from Loches is this little gem of a lagoon, in Le Louroux. We drove up there a couple weeks ago for the first time, thought we’d take a walk and enjoy the crisp fresh air. The kids always love being by the water, and even let me take a few pics of them. It’s like pulling teeth to get them to look my way, usually.

After walking around the lagoon for a while, we went into town. I use that term very loosely! Not only is it an extremely tiny little town, but it was also a Sunday, so it was literally deserted. For those who don’t know, pretty well everything shuts down on Sundays in France. But we did happen upon this amazing abandoned prioress. The kids enjoyed peering around the ancient buildings and courtyard. Felt like something out of a fairy tale.

Seven (and a half) and sweet as can be.

My handsome big guy, almost eleven.

I get this look a lot from him these days (complete with eye roll). Love him to bits, all the same.

    Beautiful pictures…..especially of the kids. Looks cold though….their noses are red.
