He had a large horn draped around him so he was the chap who was there to warn of oncoming cars or warn us of impending hounds and deer I am never quite sure which way round it is, this area is literally by the roadside, obviously the forest was there first and the road went straight through it.(when I say road it is a country lane I guess)
We heard gunshots all day so I am guessing a few deer were bagged.
Sunday morning we went to Bais to a Vide Grenier ( French car boot ) sometimes you can buy a bargain but lately it is children's clothes and toys, for us it is really a chance to get out and get some exercise, Bais is a pretty village although when there are 200 stalls there you can't really see it, but the church there has a lovely two door entrance, which isn't the main entrance, we haven't figured out why, there are plaques one on each door but of course they are in latin so couldn't read them...
|This is the beautiful domed ceiling|
|Here you can see the big dome better|
|Here I have tried to capture the stone carvings which were so intricate|
This is the centre with a fountain in the centre, it was switched off for the occasion, in the background to the left of the fountain and under the yellow parasol is the afore mentioned bar, to the right of the fountain is the beautiful Marie (Mayors office) I was going to get a closer picture but my camera said it was full.so sadly couldn't, note to self "get a memory card for camera"
This was the second half of it which went on as far as the eye could see.
The French were doing a lot of buying of toys and children's clothes ready for Christmas I am thinking, they are well into recycling as a lot of them are out of work here, being so rural there is farming or your own business and nothing much else.
Tout a l'heure
