In the summer of 1774 Antoinette and Louis were often found together, outdoors, talking, walking and hanging out. Antoinette was recently in receipt of the Petit Trianon, a place she wanted "to do just what I like in it."
That summer the couple enjoyed, with a bit more freedom, the relaxing pleasures of an ideal rural lifestyle. When it was warm and breezy they would be found wandering through the terraces at Versailles and all the while arm in arm.
They would sit out of doors in soft grass together, yes, Marie and Louis! They loved this stuff! There they would talk about things...from whatever Marie wanted to talk about I'm sure, but also about France and political work. I imagine being away from the desk and outside in a beautiful area is rather good grounds for gaining a fresh perspective on work at hand. Sometimes they would eat strawberries with cream and talked about building a dairy near by!
