Smooth . . .

Our 8:30 am departure leads us south across the coast and inland to the southern marshes.  Along the way we pass by a great castle of Richard the Lion-Heart and the first cathedral occupied by the legendary Cardinal Richelieu.  We will hear more about these giants later, but today our destination is the village where Richard Lion-Heart's mother was born.   Eleanor of Aquitaine, as many know, ruled over Richard when Richard came close to ruling the world -- European that is.
