Week 43 2022

 Hello!

The beautiful sunny days continue.  We had a lovely day in Bordeaux at the festival of new wines and antiques. The streets in the Chartrons were bursting with people out and about, enjoying the event.  There was live music groups dotted along the streets!  I just love the double bass...


Halloween is upon us this weekend, so lots of spooky events in the region.

Whatever you do in the Gironde and Dordogne regions, keep enjoying the fabulous weather and have a great week.
Best wishes,
Helen

Coming up...

1 November is Toussaints. It is a catholic holy day and in France it's a public holiday and a time when families visit cemeteries to remember and honour their deceased relatives. It's traditional for families to put a pot of chrysanthemums on the graves of their family for la Fete de la Toussaint.





And finally...

Don't forget to change your clocks on Saturday night.  We gain the hour, so lighter in the morning, but those evenings will be drawing in.

We are delighted to welcome Clara Johnson to exhibit her oil paintings at the Maison des Artisans in Sauveterre. Her paintings are characterised by sweeping brush cuts and vivid colours depicting the landscapes where she lives and works.
Come and have a look, you are sure to recognise the local countryside, and they make great gifts too.
