The train ride to Chartres takes about an hour and I managed to get some knitting done on the train.
The cathedral in Chartres is famous for it's stained glass windows, particularly the blue colors.
They have an important relic - a piece of fabric that I've seen variously described as the Blessed Mother's tunic, camisole, and veil. At any rate, it was something she wore. I believe that this relic generated so many pilgrims it was necessary to build the cathedral to accommodate them.
We had a pizza lunch at a very pleasant square in the town. They were huge thin-crust pizzas. Janet's had potatoes and John's had various meats and an egg.
When we returned home we stopped at the cafe on the corner for dessert: tarte tatin for Janet and John, and chocolate cake with creme Anglais for Bill and me.
