This was at the roundabout as you enter St-Peray. It is from a nearby alambic museum (distillery museum).
Well, it's our last day so we just spent the day close to home. Did some cleaning, mowed the lawn, ran. Went to a small lake nearby but when we got there, we found out it was closed. It was a private lake but you can go in for a small fee (if it had been open). So, we headed back to Valence and ended up finding a beautiful park called Parc de Jouvet. It was huge with lots of big old trees, a fountain (of course, every park has a fountain), and a little train that went around a track through the park. There were also lots of beautiful gardens. The kids played for a long time here and even made some French friends.

We've enjoyed our holiday here so much and are sad to see it come to an end. We've really enjoyed the house we stayed at, the chickens, the fresh vegetables, the huge yard. It was a great place to stay and a very central spot for all of our day trips.
