This week we are continuing our trip through Tours, the largest city in the Loire Valley. I am taking you through narrow streets with restaurants, cafés, brocante stores, lush creepers and beautiful architecture adding to the personality and appeal of this lovely city.

My friend R and myself stopped for a Sunday morning breakfast at a side-walk café...

Now who can resist these mouthwatering French pastries?

Today we are visiting Tours, the largest city in the Loire Valley. I had no idea what to expect as my dear friend R drove me to Tours in her blue car.... We were chatting and laughing and eating apricots in the car while I was admiring our beautiful surroundings of the Loire Valley. I am so grateful that I had R as my personal guide because she drove us through the narrow streets of Tours, knew where to park, where to stop for a cool drink and showed me all the places of interest!

A refreshing lemon flavored French!

I don't know how you feel about the French countryside but I just couldn't get enough of it.....I hope you don't mind if I share some more photographs of villages in the Loire valley my friend R and myself visited! R was so sweet and drove me all over the place....I really don't know what this town was called but I loved the narrow streets, architecture and the texture and finish on the walls of the house to the right...

We travelled through sunflower fields, vineyards, etc.... and needless to say with my jaw dropping more and more.....could this all be for real?

We ended this lovely trip with a delicious late lunch.....
