Chateau du Pin

Some pictures of Chateau du Pin in the Loire Valley of France where I met friends a few weeks ago.  It’s in Champtoce-sur-Loire.  The owners rent out one wing of the chateau, which accommodated 13 adults and 3 children that week.  The region is famous for its chateaus and wines like the Saumur Champigny and Savennières.

14th St. NW DC

A month ago,  I was back in DC.

After having brunch at Cork Wine Bar with friends, we walked around the neighborhood along 14th St.

I love this mural advertising personal training services.

Guggenheim Museum, New York

I went to the Guggenheim Museum a few weekends ago.  I loved the art collection here but the most memorable part was the building itself.

Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1943, it wasn’t completed until after Wright’s death in 1959.  I liked the compactness of the building, which makes seeing the works on view manageable in one afternoon.

Ascending and descending the helical ramp is the only way to appreciate this modern interior space.
