We are just back from a week at our daughter's home. She lives just outside Paris. This time we decided not to do Paris the city but visit some of the beautiful towns and villages that surround it and am I pleased we did. On Sunday we visited a beautiful medieval village holding it's annual Medieval Fair. No expense spared they laid on an amazing event all for free. The bar (above) being a perfect example of their attention to detail.
Every authentic tent contained an artisan showing their skills to eager pupils.
They dispayed and sold their crafts
lunch time arrived the local women had set up a kitchen in the town's
market square, under cover and what a fabulous cover it was. It was lovely to get out of the sun.
The food and wines were amazing. We got 4 huge plates like this for 26 Euros. Even the bread was homemade and delicious.
The programme was beautifully crafted.
The Gooseherd brought his flock out for a walk around the town.
And the day was rounded off with a jousting display.
Our little granddaughter 3 year old Tiana had a wonderful day and
the whole event left us with some beautiful memories. Isn't that how it's supposed to be?
