Yesterday, I promised you a stroll through Saint Amour for today, and here it is:
The village square with the church on one side.
Inside the church.
A better shot from outside.
In the village; vineyards come right up to the houses.
The mairie (town hall) with a heart-shaped sign (Kay, you'd like to see one like this above every town hall, don't you!). This must be a very popular place for couples to have their marriage registered. (Of course, in real life, neither the road nor the buildings are as lopsided as they appear. Lopsidedness seems to have become my trademark...)
More random pictures from the village.
See that little dog running towards us? He wasn't barking or aggressive; he simply accompanied us on our stroll until he found an an open courtyard with a little boy and a cat and decided they were more entertaining company than us (or is it "than we"?).
This house was completely different from the rest of the buildings here. Apparently it belongs to the same family who own the Hameau Duboeuf, shown in my previous post.
Looking up at those tightly shuttered and bricked up windows, my sister and I were both quite sure this place is inhabited by at least one vampire.
Bye-bye, little dog - and bye for now, Saint Amour!
There'll be a trip to Macon, nearby larger town, tomorrow. And I am now off for my Sunday morning run - the sun is out, the sky is blue, it's beautiful, and so are you!
