Hi everyone, I'm here earlier as by the time some of you read this will be on the way down south! We're hoping to see lots of Autumn colours.
For now though, I'm going back to our last outing with our friends from Poitiers.
I'm joining in at T Stands for Tuesday at The Altered Book Lover (More of that later)
As I mentioned last week, it was Patrimoine weekend. We set off early to visit a medieval fair.
It was in the commune of Chateau Larcher. What we didn't know was that the whole village was taken over. The castle and neighbouring church dominated everything - very impressive!
The dragons were around entertaining the children
We decided to visit the church first
The next few pics were taken by hubby
It is quite a plain church but with some quite ornate features.
This area was quiet as we passed but later the crowds were watching 'battles'
We enjoyed a pork dish with a delicious sauce and potatoes, followed by Tarte Tatin. We drank water which was refilled as soon as it was emptied! I am of course joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth at The Altered Book Lover for T Stands for Tuesday.
On the way back to visit the chateau we saw Crusader knights
As we left we spotted this loom above the gate
Once outside the gate we were just in time for the procession of all the people who had dressed up during the day
Back to where our car was parked - a sunflower field
Very red soil - you can imagine what that did to the car, so the next day, before the Queen's funeral....
