After two long flights and some sleep, we caught the train to Versailles where we were staying for two nights. In the afternoon we wandered around the gardens of the palace trying to keep awake! Had a fairly early night and then were up early and were about 6th in line to head into the palace at 9am. It was so wonderful to finally see the Hall of Mirrors. We did come here in the 70's but the palace was closed!

 In the afternoon we visited the Grand Trianon, the Petit Trianon and Marie Antoinette's gardens. It was such a special experience.

We are now in Bordeaux. It is a beautiful city.
