I’d missed it on every trip, and it was the #1 fairytale image from my childhood. Who knows, maybe it was why I was an architect. So we left early from Corsavy in the Pyrenees and drove north, got there around noon, ate among the crowds, and then got in a tour group. We were marched up and we were marched down, and in and out, and what I wanted was to find my perfect scene to paint. The rule was you had to be with a group. But at one point Peter pulled me aside, off onto a turret overlooking the walls, and we let the group troop on past. I got out my stuff and standing right there, finally got my picture of Carcassone! We just slipped in with one of the last groups of the afternoon and got out before they locked us in for the night.
