On to the Dordogne

Before leaving the Loire valley we popped into the church at St Aignan and were delighted to see that it was still dressed for the wedding we'd heard during the day. 

It looked so beautiful and the alter was stunning. 

Couldn't resist this pattern shot.

The next day we made our way towards the Dordogne area and ended up at another lovely town called Montignac.

It was very hot so we called it a day and stopped for lunch French style.

This morning the market was in town and I bought Jasmine tea and some rather expensive lace, will show next time when I've photographed it.

This afternoon we visited the natural caves of St Christophe which have been occupied by man since Prehistory. 

This is a long shot of the location.

Who is this person who always seems to be in my shots? And I don't mean the guard on top of the gate :-) 

They even had a church hewn into the rock.

This model gives an idea of how it would have looked in medieval times.

A post from me wouldn't be complete without textures.

And finally ......

Look out !!!! The bears are coming in.

Thankyou for sharing your trip to France. It is such a beautiful country and the scenery is stunning. I love those little medieval houses in the model.

I always think rural France looks beautiful. An horrific weekend in Paris has put me off visiting again though.....long story, best forgotten etc etc. It does look like you had a wonderful holiday though.
