On to the Tarn

After leaving the Dordoigne, we headed towards our favourite area of France, the Tarn. 

Our first stop was a town well known to us, Martel.

This church has an amazing interior which was of course a pattern lover's dream.

We had an amazing couple of very hot days here on a wonderful municipal campsite which cost an incredible 8.44 euros a night including electric hookup.

I even had this beautiful house to practice my sketching skills on, what a bonus.

Next morning we went to another market and of course I just had to buy some homemade soap.

We decided to have a quiet night on our own on a perfect picnic area, and woke up to this as our breakfast view. 

On the banks of the Tarn.

After an amazingly quiet night we headed off for our destination, a large Aire high up in the Tarn Valley. But first we had to visit a chateau.

The bells!!!

There's that man again!! In my shot.

More pattern

And of course tart :-) 

Thanks to everyone who's following our trip.
