Getting ready for Xmas in Valbonne

joyeux noel de valbonne arcades watermarked

This is going to be my Xmas card for this year in Valbonne with Father Xmas serving a Xmas pudding to one of his customers.

When the weather is sunny people have lunch outside even in winter !

I will have this design printed  in a postcard format (with envelope) which will be available for sale at the English Book Centre in Valbonne from next week.

Brittany, the Odet River

Riviere Odet

I was invited to a wedding last weekend in Brittany and the reception was taking place near the Odet River with its wonderful views. The weather was perfect and this gate between stone walls caught my eye as it created a beautiful contrast in shape and texture.

From a touristic point of view, the river runs past, or through, the towns of Bénodet, Combrit, Plomelin, Quimper, Ergué-Gabéric, Briec-de-l’Odet, Langolen, Coray,Trégourez, Leuhan and Saint-Goazec.
