(Please go back to my previous post - since posting it originally, I have added some more pictures from Mâcon.)
A weekend is always short, even when it is a long weekend with Friday and Monday added to it.
We had arrived in France on Friday early evening, and left on the Monday a bit after breakfast. The time in between we passed in such a pleasant manner and at such a comfortable rhythm that it felt much longer than "just" a weekend. Of course this was all thanks to our friends from Australia, who have kindly given me permission to show their picture on here and write about them:
|B and W, the "Angels From Down Under" my Mum wrote about in her last guest post, and who taught me my very first words in English when I was about 3.|
To end this series of posts about our weekend in France, I want to show you a lovely place in the heart (pun fully intended) of the village: the pottery.
View from the road - and from inside out. I must admit I nicked the outside view from the Saint Amour homepage. The poterie have their own website here, but it is still being set up and so there is nothing to see yet apart from their address.
My sister and I could hardly tear ourselves away from the friendly cat who lives at the pottery - totally unfazed by visitors! When I stroked her, she purred.
Of course I had asked the lady at the shop for permission to take the picture - it was the only sentence in French I uttered all weekend, but that's what you get when you have two Germans visiting Australians in France :-)
I hope you enjoyed my posts about this mini holiday as much as I did writing the posts!
