Visit to the Chateau de Versailles.

Waiting at the back door for crumbs!

A feast for the eyes at every turn!

                        The Queen's bed chamber is positively sumptuous!

Many of the chateau's ceilings are beautifully painted.

Competing with the walls for attention.

The wealth of busts, statues, paintings and urns est une merveille!
In the vast grounds each urn has a different, fascinating design.

                                    Manicured gardens under a heavy sky.
