Almost Nice: Gourdon 3

This restaurant/tea shop is called Le Nid d'Aigle, the Eagle's Nest, I just can't think why...
I'm quite proud of the photo as I was hanging over the void when I took it and, truly, I have no head for heights.

Great job, Angela! The things we do for our DP!
Spectacular scenery! And did you notice that semi-private dining area on top of the tower?

Really Cool picture and I googled it--I would certainly go there it looks like fun. The comment you left me was right on it is a Magnolia tree--thank you for that because I could not think of the name.

Village seem so small down there. Must be Eagles Nest, because eagles make their nests high in mountains.
