Hi there Bloggettes!
Now more photos have been requested of our recent sojourn to La Belle France.
Pull up a pew.... I've had a mega session!
This is the old dove cote at the chateau. I find it quite amazing that they built it perfectly round. You can't see it but on the top is a carved dove.
Just a view across the valley towards the village of Rosay.
This is one of the fireplaces in the dining room - I did mean to take loads more pictures of the inside... however I didn't!
This is the little town of Saint Saens. Now it isn't a big place at all. However it did have three butchers, three bakers, a fish shop and two green grocers set around this pretty little square! Not like our towns at all!
Just one of the pretty little streets.
On our way back up to the tunnel we called in at Wimeraux. Now this is a lovely seaside town! Obviously as its the 'end of the season' and then some! Most things were closed. However we did find a super little cafe for lunch - I had a yummy goats cheese salad. I always smile at all the dogs who go in the cafes. When I had mine they'd have been on the tables!
These are the properties right on the promenade. I think they're really pretty - much nicer looking than what we generally have in this country. Not an amusement arcade in sight.
Rue General Marchand - this leads down to the promenade.
As you can see the sea was a little rough! Definitely no paddling! I think I'd have been washed right over to Dover!
Just looking up the promenade, the cafe we went in is just on the right.
All along the coastline are sign of the German occupation. I don't know why it has a blanket on this bunker though!
Right onto craft! (at last).
A friend of mine ordered a card with macaws on it! So this is what I came up with. Tilda stamp and coloured to show the different sorts. Laundry Line papers, and Nestie shapes.
As you look a scarlet, blue and gold and a greenwing macaw!
Oh and just for Kathy... look what OM got me!
Its even got its own bracelet! I think I might have to name this bag.... any ideas?
Oh and to finish (I hope you're still awake!) I was telling about my OM thinking he'd taken my photo but hadn't - well I did find one he'd taken......
As you can see he chopped my head off!
Hey perhaps its a subliminal message!
