The Roofs of Preuilly sur Claise

Usually when I post a photo looking across Preuilly it is taken from near the Chateau.

This photo was taken in September from the new improved photo spot mentioned in a previous post. The big advantage of the new spot is that there is no garden wall immediately in front of you. The disadvantage is that one false step could have you rolling down a steep bank and through someone's cabbages. Still - if they can't cope with plunging Anglos, they shouldn't have a vegetable garden at the foot of a cliff...

One of the things I like about the location is that it gives a new and different view across Preuilly, including a previously unseen view of the Mairie roof.

We have commented before how close Roux is to Preuilly. Roux is the hamlet visible just above the Mairie spire (most visible is a range of slight off-white farm sheds). If you know where to look, you can even see the gite we rent when we don't stay in our own indoor camping site.

Today we are visiting the Marché aux truffes de Marigny-Marmande. We went last year with M. & Mme Proust, but this year we are visiting on our own and intend buying an ungraded truffle for home consumption. No doubt we will be buying other gourmet foodstuffs as well, so hopefully this will provide Susan with lots of really tasty and interesting blog posts, and as a side effect (purely coincidental, of course) a plate or two of food I will have to eat.

Hrmm. Mind your manners.
