Table of contents

Since you are driving from Wales , why not ferry cross towards Caen Cherbourg? Take a day or two to explore the Normandy beaches, the Bayeux tapestries or even Mont St Michel , if you have never seen any of these sites, then make your way through the " Suisse Normande" and then the Alpes Mancelles down to the Sarthe.

The old city of Le Mans is remarkably restored and worth a visit. From there, you can easily hop down to the major castles of the Loire Valley for a days' excursion visit, without having to be caught up in tourist traffic. The little Loir valley, running parallel to the main Loire Valley, just 30 miles North and the Perche Sarthois are very peaceful and offer some charming self catering cottages.

All I had to do was google each place of interest, since obviously in a volunteer-typed kindle book, there are no accompanying photos. I began to collect many pictures which I shared on social media, to much delight of friends.

I also was inspired to zoom in with google earth's little man, who carried me to street level to see the streets and monuments where James had walked. This was a tour well worth doing, even if I had to do it virtually. Oh by the way, I picked up on this book after reading David McCullough's Americans in Paris, which I also highly recommend to history buffs. Henry James was one of those Americans McCullough talked about.

Marius Topin, who undertakes to explain this latter anomaly, and to show that there is water enough in the port, as we may call it by courtesy, to have sustained a fleet of crusaders. I was unable to trace the channel that he points out, but was glad to believe that, as he contends, the sea has not retreated from the town since the thirteenth century.

It was comfortable to think that things are not so changed as that. Behind the straight walls and the quiet gates the little town has not crumbled, like the Cite of Carcas- sonne.

It can hardly be said to be alive; but if it is dead it has been very neatly embalmed. The hand of the restorer rests on it constantly; but this artist has not, as at Carcassonne, had miracles to accomplish. The interior is very still and empty, with small stony, whitewashed streets, tenanted by a stray dog, a stray cat, a stray old woman. It is almost as bad as the breakfast I had at the inn that bears the name of that pious monarch. This footway, wide enough only for a single pedestrian, is in the best order, and near each of the gates a flight of steps leads up to it; but a locked gate, at the top of the steps, makes access im- possible, or at least unlawful.

Aigues-Mortes, however, has its citadel, an immense tower, larger than any of the others, a little detached, and standing at the north- west angle of the town. The Tour de Con- stance is of extraordinary girth and solidity, divided into three superposed circular chambers, with very fine vaults, which are lighted by embrasures of prodigious depth, converging to windows little larger than loop- holes.
