Traditionall worn by Shepherds to look over their flock. These stiltwalkers, young and old,  at the Beef Fair in Bazas today carry on the tradition and added a real flavour of days gone past.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Happy Place

Chateau Bertranon in St Croix de Mont can be found on the Saint Maxant Road between Cadillac and Langon in the Sud-Gironde. This glorious vineyard rolls away from the road and it’s fabulous gates towards, what in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful Chateau in the region. Every time we pass by my heart lifts and spirit lightens as it did today. So in response to this weeks challenge l relished the opportunity to capture this lovely scene yet again – this is my magical, evocative and happy place ( other than in the arms and company of my three girls, wife, daughter and grand daughter ).

My big sister, Chris, has just got back from a week-end break in Naples – She took some wonderful pictures and has kindly allowed me to share a few of them with you. It is also another opportunity to remind you that Dani’s marathon walk around London in support of the ‘Shine’ cancer charities takes place this coming Saturday night. Thank you so much for those of you that have shown your support. It is a great project and our beautiful daughter has been training so hard for this worthy cause and l ask you to join us in wishing her well and have every confidence that she will successfully complete the 42 Kilometre course. There is still time, should you wish, to donate a few bob towards Dani’s target of £1000 she is hoping to raise for this worthy cause – you will find out how here:- https://www.justgiving.com/DanieleWoods2015/?utm_id=22
