Week 39 2013


It’s so lovely to have the sunshine back again.  We were inspired to head out into the countryside and visit an area that we don’t know so well.   We discovered this beautiful sparkling weir at St Seurin sur Isle complete with a little beach. 

Can you believe that it’s less than 100 days (or sleeps!) until Christmas? I’m already receiving information about Christmas Markets, so if you are holding one, or know of one please let me know.  I’m always keen to receive your contributions about event and activities in and around the Gironde and Dordogne regions, send me pictures, posters and words and I’ll include them in the relevant weeks.

Have a good week, I guess we’ll all be at the pottery and art exhibition next weekend, there really isn’t much I can find going on…

Best wishes,

Who knew James Bond drove a car like this…

Or that one tin of car paint could cover so many cars…

Or that there's always space for a picnic, no matter how small your car is...

We saw these cars at St Medard on our adventure!
