Zigzagging Across France

by on August 4, 2008


We are zigzagging our way across France.  We stopped in Colmar (again) and stayed for 3 days at our favourite campsite…beside the river.

The River in Colmar

The storks lurking for a feed…

Storks in Colmar

Camped next to us were two brothers…one with an accordion and the other a saxophone.  Every day and evening they would cycle off to earn their keep amid the outdoor cafes in town.  On the one night that it rained we had the pleasure of listening to them play their wonderful music while we ate our dinner…

An Evening of Gypsy Music

After Colmar…we made our way North to Strasbourg then headed West to the Atlantic coast (La Rochelle) stopping in Troyes…

Old House in Troyes

And Poitier where we saw…I believe…our oldest L’eglise yet….

Very Old Church in Poitier

This church is the St Paul-St Peter (or St Peter-St Paul) church…first built early in the 11th Century.

Many (many) slides to follow…..
