26/09/2016 A trip into the local town.

Maximum temperature 23C, minimum 9C. 11 km/h NE wind. Dry. 
Two way road....

not much room.

We stopped at the dechetterie, (recycling). Always so clean and tidy.

A wooden carving peering out from the shrubs!

The parish church of Saint-Saturnin from the XII century. 

The local town hall and Mairie.  Not sure when this was built, but the first mayor that I can track down was in 1899.  The building has just been cleaned and is looking wonderful.

The local railway station has also just been restored.

I was impressed with myself last night - this courgette souffle looked and tasted amazing :-)

    I find it really stunning!
    Your souflé looks very yummy and successful!
    I hope you are well, I am very busy with the stag rut these days, it does not last long!

  4. Sure are narrow roads. That wooden guy looks like he's hiding in the bush. Great to see these old buildings restored. You are going crazy with courgettes. That looks scrumptious.

    1. Normally that wooden guy at this time of the year is barely visible but due to lack of rain....... The railway station I have been saying ever since we moved here that it needs restoring so glad that someone has actually arranged it at last. Keep well Diane
