Week 40 2015


Ste Foy was alive with horses this weekend.  There were all sorts from tiny little Thelwell ponies, ponies pulling carriages, great big horses and an ethereal albino horse with ghostly grey eyes (I was mesmerised by that one). 

We watched as the blacksmith made and fitted the shoe horses, we saw little children fearlessly race around on horseback and watched the carriage rides passing through the streets.

Combined with the Puces de la Bastide it was good to see the town bustling.

I can’t find much going on this week in the region, and as always, if you hear of any events or want to share an activity please don’t hesitate to send me details, they are always most  welcome.

Have a great week in the Dordogne and Gironde regions,
Best wishes,

Fred and Mick, two old friends, are on vacation in an elegant hotel at the foot of the Alps. Fred, a composer and conductor, is now retired. Mick, a film director, is still working. They look with curiosity and tenderness on their children's confused lives, Mick's enthusiastic young writers, and the other hotel guests. While Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred has no intention of resuming his musical career. But someone wants at all costs to hear him conduct again.   Starring Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel and Rachel Weisz

And Finally…

If you don’t want this to become a thing of the past, pop over to Les Guinots in Flaujagues and tell them that it’s your favourite sparkling wine, and they simply can’t discontinue. The decision hangs in the balance, so call them 05 57 40 08 06 (Laure speaks English), email or drop in and buy some and make a point!
