Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
A popular excursion on a Sunday is to visit a local Brocante (flea-market) and albeit Montreuil-Bellay was playing host this weekend we decided to ring the changes and visit the Brocante at Les Rosiers sur Loire, a picture postcard town set along the edge of the Loire river.
In her element to potter around the Brocante while Mama searched for ‘finds’ was Constance whose eagerness to touch everything did hinder somewhat !
Augustin grew bored after a short while and decided it best to assist Papa at the Boulangerie, passing the time eating freshly baked baguette and sipping orangina.
Editors note: Have you visited this market, or one like it, in France?
Do you find it a valuable experience?
What do you get out of it – do you sell or do you buy?
