|hard work supporting a pillar|
Yesterday we popped over to Le Grand Pressigny, a large village further along the Aigronne river. On Thursdays they have a small market: a couple of fruit & veg stalls, a butcher, a poulter and a sausage seller. We sometimes buy from one of the fruit & veg stalls. The lady sells own grown produce. Earlier in the year she had excellent green asparagus. Now it is the melon season and we came away with 4 very small but sweet ones which we'll eat over the weekend with some Parma style ham.
|I think he has fleas...|
We'd parked round the back of the church inbetween the trees and the war memorial. The memorial has something you don't often see. In addition to the roll call of the dead, there were the names of 5 people who were deported to Germany as forced labourers during WWII.
The church doors were wide open and as we'd never been inside we decided to have a look-see before buying our fruit. We spotted a number of carvings on the nave pillars.
|bat, not in the belfry!|
Neither of us have ever seen a bat before although you do see the odd dog. Luckily we had the small camera in the car so were able to take a few pictures. After buying our melons we went and had a coffee at the Pre-Histo bar and spent quite a bit of time enjoyably watching the world go by before heading home for lunch.
