JIM'S 5th WATER COLOUR WORKSHOP IN FRANCE
Meet n Greet dinner on the first night at The Mill
Jim and Mo Gensheer and their group arrived safely in Bordeaux on 6 May on their latest trip to France.
It was just like old times when Ray and Lynne met them at Bordeaux Airport.
They then travelled by minibus to The Mill near Mezin in Southwest France where they'll spend the week painting and discovering some of Gascony's secrets.
The above photo was taken in the dining room on their first night. The river passes directly under this 13th Century building which was several hundred years old when Christopher Columbus set sail for America. But the accommodation has been tastefully and faithfully restored and is now a luxury 6 bedroom self catering gite.
Come back to this Blog regularly for more information and photos of Jim's group's trip to France.
