Easter Egg Treasure Hunt and Daglan Village

Children of all ages gathered at the local Primary School for the Easter Egg treasure hunt around Daglan village yesterday morning. Various eggs, candy and clues were hidden in and around the village but the one that the children wanted was the chocolate rabbit which found would lead to an Easter surprise.

Hidden cluesOne clue was attached to the bush which was at the side of the supermarket. This is a smart little girl collecting all of the treats to share out later.

Fred and Ethel!

It is pouring with rain today so a walk down the many pretty lanes near our village is out of the question. However, we did take some pictures a few days ago on our cold but sunny morning walk.

Walk through our village of Daglan and turn tight in the direction of Saint-Cybranet you will see Fred and Ethel guarding one of the local fields.

Fred and EthelFred and Ethel, as you can see are stick people relaxed and leaning backwards, Fred on the left and Ethel on the right. I really should get out more!
 

After taking the picture of Fred and Ethel I realised that the local stable ‘Les Écuries Du Claud’ looks like it is sinking slowly into the mire!

Turn right at Les Euries du Claud and it will take you along a lovely country lane.
dscn2318You will walk alongside the river Céou on the left and see more horses on the right.

Walk a little further and you arrive at a park, there are wooden benches here so that you can sit and enjoy the view.
