Bastille day today, and last night was a late one.
I have been scattering the blog with photos of things I want - here, here, and here.
I would like to have one of these gates - but I have nowhere to put it. What a magnificently over-engineered piece of work this is.
Last night we did the retraite au flambeaux, watched fireworks and watched the French dancing - which is fascinating and demands greater observance. We were so involved in it we didn't take any photos, but it looked sort of like last year. Rick, Judi and Felicity from Napier in New Zealand joined us, and got a very different first view of Preuilly to that which people normally get.
