1982 in France with the Sankers

France Loir-et-Cher postcard - July 9, 1982
Hi – We left Paris yesterday and came 200 miles south.  Visited Cathedral in Chartres (started 1000 years ago) & two Chateaus – we went to Versailles on our last day in the Paris area.  Rented Bikes.

Have a Peugeot auto – gas is $3.00 a gallon.  Had a picnic lunch today & also enjoying the French restaurants.  Seen several big campgrounds – fancy tents.  Love, Jean & Harold

7/11/82 – We are here this A.M.
We have gone about 700 miles so far since Paris and are now heading East toward the Riviera & Italy.  These ancient places makes us wish we had studied more history and French!  Castles, chateaus and cathedrals!  Now at this walled city waiting for Eng. speaking guide – very few.

Hope all is going well.  Wish you could see beautiful flowers and gardens and flower fields!
With much love, Dad & Mother
