07/06/2017 Car was serviced this morning and then we took a trip into Angouleme.

Maximum temperature 20C, minimum 7C.  7 km/h SW wind.  Dry.
Just down the road from home.

Lots of traffic on the N141...

that time of the year, lots of camper vans on the roads. 

Angouleme in the distance.

Ghost sign, which I cannot make out what it was advertising....

Another one for a nursery...

and this one is for Tissus Metallaques Weiller (what ever that may be!)

loved this little roundabout in St Cybard...

where we had lunch at Chez Doud.

After we walked down to the Charente river...

The chimney belongs to the old Angouleme paper mill.

I am hoping my French speaking followers can read this small writing about the Imaging Centre.

The back of the Imaging Centre - Angouleme is the comic strip capital...

The front of the building...

and the side.  I think it is a beautiful place.

    1. Who knows? I presume that they do not use it anymore, though that whole place is now a museum dedicated to the history of the paper industry in the town. Cheers Diane
