In the afternoon we went for a tour around the countryside starting with a visit to the beautiful church at Aulnay. A wealth of inspiration for knitting designs with textured stonework and beautiful stained glass windows.
Then on for a tour of the gorgeous Chateau at Dompierre
Saturday morning was a trip into St Jean d'Angely market, then in the afternoon a long walk with BeBop to Egreteau our local Cognac distillery for a tasting session and a few purchases of Cognac and Pineau.
On Sunday we went to the brocante at Varaize, it is always a good one stretching through all the back streets of the village. I bought two mirrors and some plates, Louise bought a table and Kate bought a little settee.
In the afternoon we drove down to Royan and had lunch in the sunshine at the marina, then back home for apero's in the garden. A lovely weekend.
