Open Thread - Monday

Yesterday I shared some photos of the floats going past our street, which is not the most picturesque in the village. Here are some more photos of the best bits, streets we walk every day...

La Maison du Poete

The only surviving gate of a once walled city

XVth century bridge, one of the oldest surviving bridges in France

We spent the day at the beach and it was fantastic! It's a man-made beach on a lake, but the scenery is gorgeous, the water is very clean and we get to swim with the fish. They are nice fish, not the Mafia type...

Peter has a thing about the Hotel du Lac. He expects to see Hercule Poirot peering from the balcony...

The kayaking competitions will get under way next week. There's an open day where everybody and his dog come down the river, when they open the dam. I do mean it about the dogs. Last year we saw a few having a great time!

I hope you've enjoyed this tour of our village and its surroundings. We love it! It's a bit like living in a postcard.
