Out & About in Rural France ~ Jan 2011

sunny 8 °C

Here is a hodge-podge of photos taken in various locations in my meanderings through the Aquitaine, Dordogne and other regions of southern France.

The River Dordogne running through Bergerac....the crew of this rowing boat were kind enough to stop right under the bridge on which I was standing!

Ann and I did a quick sorty to Tournon, another bastide town...
Many French towns have statues in remembrance of the many young men who gave their lives in the 2 great wars of the 20th century.

Took a day off to travel to le Temple-sur-Lot, reported to be the secret meeting place of the Knights Templar and the source of Monet's waterlillies, passing through Casseneuil, Sainte-Livrade-sur-Lot and Castelmoron-sur-Lot, prune country!

Did I mention that we passed through Condom on the way to Salles??!! Didn't have my camera out to take a photo, but it really is there :)
