Mr. Fleurishing and I finally rented The Adventures of Tintin…not only did we enjoy it, but memories came rushing back of my second trip to France. My brother has been a huge fan of the comic since childhood, and has quite an impressive collection. So, when visiting him in 2006, we combined a tour of Cheverny with the Tintin museum on the grounds! I was excited to learn that the beautiful chateau was the model for Captain Haddock’s country estate, and every time I see it in comic form I am reminded of the beauty. The museum is full of fun, with vignettes of Tintin’s desk, closet and costumes, storyboards, and a room that simulates a scary storm-we all really enjoyed it, and it is a great place to take children! My brother captured a favorite photo of my Mom and I on the grounds…it was a special day for everyone.
