14/04/2017 Out shopping and looking around!

Maximum temperature 19C, minimum 6C. 12 kmh NE wind.  Dry.
Charente forests.

Hmmm the elections are coming up very soon.

The church at Montemboeuf and the war memorial to the left... 

and the library.

Advertising in the car park, La Rochefoucauld...

As above.

The Chateau, I could take photos of this on a daily basis, I love it...

As above


Le Pont du Chateau - La Rochefoucauld.


The main street in La Rochefoucauld. Apologies for the blur on our windscreen, the car in front is not smoking!

Rape seed oil driving back home, love the yellow fields.

    3. Not from France but we now live here, and bought our house her in 2005. I was born in the UK, but went to Africa when I was 9 and lived there for 50 years before returning to the UK for a short time.

  2. Wish there were more women pictured for your elections. Interesting advertising technique. I can understand your attraction to the Chateau, such a gorgeous building.

    1. It is hard not to take photos of the chateau when in the town, it dominates the place and is such a great building. There is only usually ever one woman in the election line up here, maybe one day we will get a female president but I doubt if it will happen this year! Diane
