As a Fathers Day treat a Picnic breakfast was called for, to our delight the morning was full of surprises.
First a visit to Maison Carré at Castelnaud-la-Chapelle for some wonderful pastries and breakfast by the river. It was a little chilly yesterday morning but we still enjoyed the peace of the river Dordogne.
Then for our first surprise:-Vintage cars, a Brocante and Vide Grenier, who could ask for more.
This is Paul’s favourite of the morning.
He was a rally driver in his (much) younger years and his love of fast and fascinating cars still holds true today.
I picked the very showy Stingray, enough said I think.
Two more wow my goodness cars …
… and then off to the Brocante.
If you are ever in Daglan you must call in at the Brocante. The owner pictured above was present with a nice display of antiques and bric-a-brac.
I was very tempted with the vintage containers.
All that was needed was the sunshine to make it perfect.
Then on to the Sunday market at St Cyprien
Who needs sunshine when you have this magnificent display of colour not only along the main road in St Cyprien but the side streets and car parks as well.
This display was superb. Wow, paper wisteria pink and blue hanging from the sky.
We have brilliant news, Association Pirate, cat rescue now have an office in the Presbytery in Daglan. They are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 14:00 to 17:30.
A Pirate from their Facebook page
They do brilliant work rescuing unwanted cats and placing them into new homes. So if you would like a cat to adopt or foster do call in. I think that they are also happy to receive cat food and toys. They will also help if you have lost a cat in the area. Take a look at their facebook page for the latest news.
