Wonderful stuff today

imageEmily and I had the great opportunity to visit the Palace of Versailles.

What a magnificent day it was. All I can say is gorgeous!

in 1661, Loius XVI started transforming the original palace built by Loius XIII. Talk about elaborate! Every single room had marble covering almost every inch of wall. I’m not talking about plain, monochromatic white marble either. Some rooms had emerald green marble. There were rooms adorned with pink, some purple, some mauve!

i have decided to redo my room in a similar design to what Marie Antionette’s. OK, maybe not. There was just too much crap to dust.

King Louis’ room was so elaborate in the color red;it was gaudy.

The Gardens at Versailles were amazing. I wish I could put all my photos on here! Lakes, ponds, fountains, statues, real swans, birds, etc. Part of our group found some cows. Of course, I didn’t see them. Did see some freshly shorn sheep though.

for now, I must go. It’s 11:30. p.m. and I have to get up at 7.

more tomorrow.
