15/07/2016 Bastille Day
Maximum temperature 23C, minimum 8C. 20 kph North East winds. Dry.
My thoughts and sympathies are with the innocent victims caught up in the massacre in Nice at the end of the Bastille Day fireworks display last night. Our own local fireworks display was late starting, so this must have happened before we started our own celebrations. Sadness, anger and solidarity all come to mind and it is hard to believe what is happening to our world today. A bunch of cowards, who are targeting families out enjoying the day with their friends and children.
Having just returned from our holiday in the USA, where we had an amazing time, thanks to so many long-time friends and I must mention Gaelyn here (always great to meet another blogger). We had a number of incidents while we were there including the terrorist attack that killed 49 and wounded 53 in Orlando. We cannot live in fear, life must go on and we cannot let these terrorists win.
Blogs will only continue probably next month. So much to do and so little time but I promise I will be back with some of the amazing photos I took while we were away, on both this blog and My Life in the Charente.
A few photos that I took last night.
