We had a marvelous trip and a very happy time in Paris. However, our plans for the Chateau country are off and we are sailing two weeks ahead of schedule because I feel it has been a little too hectic for one who has been out of things for so long a time. We have had beautiful weather the entire time and I feel very badly that we are not able to take advantage of the full time over here. I hope we shall see you soon after our return.
