Here I am back on my own again. Nigel left yesterday morning with little desire to return to the UK. Trouble is, someone still has to bring in the money! We keep buying lottery tickets in the hope that he can drop tools and join me in retirement, but so far, all we have managed to win is the odd £6 or £10 - they keep forgetting to add a string of zeros on the end!
On my way home from the airport, I stopped off to walk around a little village that I have driven through many times, but never really taken much notice of. I thought you would like to take a tour with me.
Taken from down the road on the approach to the village
I then crossed the bridge before entering Massignac
The lake that 'slims down' to run under the bridge.
A building in the centre which I think was a small restaurant. Note the brown 'item' behind the hedge
This is what it looks like from the other side!
The remainder of the centre, the boulangerie (baker) and the charcuterie (butcher).
I am sure this little gate has many stories it could tell
My guess is that this was used for grain storage, though I am possibly wrong. I think the grain was loaded in through the top openings and then taken out through the small doors at the bottom.
I just thought this looked quite pretty
and I was curious to know what was behind both of the above :-)
More photos of the church and the village to follow in another post.
