Want to check out an old medieval town with Señoritas Lavender and Zinnia?  (And their charming sidekick?)

One of the great things about traveling in the fall is that the streets belong to the locals again. Which means they’re nearly deserted. Lots of room to spread out and explore.   And this town, Montblanc, which dates back to the early 1100’s, begs to be explored.

The people of Montblanc believe that St. George slayed the dragon right here in their town.  (Honest!)  You can almost picture the battle happening just . . . there, around the corner!

Fearsome as he might have been, that dragon wouldn’t have been any match for the Eleven O’Clock Team, including the dragonslaying wunderkind known as Goose Caboose.

Phew!–I was mighty glad they had me covered! It left me free to contemplate the fineness of the day.
