Toni at Expatmum (my links give me problems when I am on my Mac and I cannot be bothered to log onto the PC - how lazy is that) tagged people to see what the fourth photo is in our fourth photo folder and this is mine. It is the wonderful viaduct across the valley in Bellac which a market town in our area of France. (You can click on the photos to get a closer look). I took these photos in July 2007 when we were in the area house hunting. As you can see the weather was "changeable". We stayed near Bellac when we first discovered, and fell in love with, the Limousin area back in 2003 and it was towns like Bellac, Montmorillon and Confelens that had us smitten. Quiet, uncrowded and picturesque.
It is a beautiful spot and so I added another photo of Bellac showing the view back up from the river to the medieval church up on the hill. We were sitting by the river next to the 12th century bridge at a lovely little restaurant. Great food and a nice spot to while away a few hours in Bellac.
And another one (can't have too many as far as I am concerned) this one of Montmorillon. The structure up on the hill (to the left of the church) is a Laterne de Mort - which translates as a death lantern, not sure the origin of these. Look at the dramatic sky, it gives you an idea of the kind of week it was, rain was always just around the corner. Notice how high the river is, they had been having non stop rain for weeks prior to our trip. In fact the day we saw "our house" it was tipping down with rain, and we still loved it. We thought that was a very good sign!
So anyone dropping in today, feel free to join in and if you do, leave me a message so I can come over and check it out.
