In this post, you will see more photos taken during my time in France ( May 2015) . Not too much text this time. It is OK as the pictures means often more than the words!
One of the national emblems of France, the Coq Gaulois (the Gallic Rooster) decorated French flags during the Revolution. It is the symbol of the French people because of the play on words of the Latin gallus meaning Gaul and gallus meaning coq, or rooster.
A nice village called Sarrant. Really enjoyed visiting it.
Follow the sign if you wish ! I don’t know what is the population there !
Did you know that there were so many Montreal ( other than the city in Canada) ? Looks like there are 7 in France !
WE visited a fine garden with beautiful flowers.
The Canal du Midi is a 241 km (150 mi) long canal in Southern France. It was originally named the Canal royal en Languedoc (Royal Canal in Languedoc) but the French revolutionaries renamed it to Canal du Midi in 1789. It was considered at the time to be one of the greatest construction works of the 17th century.
On the A64 autoroute ( highway) at Les Pyrenees Aire, in a motorway rest stop, stands this magnificent sculpture “Viewing the Tour” by Jean-Bernard Metais. A tribute to the Tour de France race.
We had a quick visit in Saint-Jean-de-Luz, located on the Atlantic coast of France . Nice architecture in that charming town of Basque country just a few kilometres from the border with Spain. This is where we were going to spend another part of our time in Europe. I will come back later and tell you that story !
We’ll say good bye to France for now . Thanks so much for visiting my blog . And a very special thank you for all who write a little comment.
MERCI BEAUCOUP !
