La Cascade

Our heroine has found her camera and in looking at the photos finds herself reliving this grand  adventure.  Come along on the first stop:  the small village of Durfort, France.

La Cascade is named for this waterfall across from the garden.

I went to La Cascade to attend a week-long, residential art workshop taught by Anna Corba.  I had taken classes with her before and love her sensibility, artistic and otherwise!  The workshop was composed of seven students plus Anna and Susan - an artist in her own right, and Anna's assistant for the week.  The house is three stories and a back garden.  With the rain we didn't spend much time in the garden.  It rained a lot that week and we were grateful for the wood burning stove in the living room.  The fire was very cozy!  Also on the first floor is the spacious kitchen, and the dining room, where we took most of our meals.  

Next up our heroine discovers what she wants to be when she grows up!  It's not a chef, so you can stop laughing!
