Brantome is a really pretty town and the market is well stocked. We had lunch in a cafe in the market place, which was really delicious. I had the hugest salmon salad ever and a cafe liegois, my first and last of the holiday. Next time I really must eat more ice cream.
View of the river from the bridge
Brantome is kind of surrounded by water, a river and a canl, meaning that it's sort of on an island. It's cool, I liked it
I love French little towns
And French little streets
These tomatoes were absolutely massive
And I wanted to buy cherries, but I didn't
The water here is part of the canal, and apparently the canal was made by the monks of the monastery just to the right of the photo, and the water wheel was theirs
This bridge was a strange one, it had to span both the river and the canal so had a cute little dog leg in it
Looking across at the market
This van did shoe repairs!
Lee decided this was the most French thing he'd ever seen
All French towns have a Rue Victor Hugo and usually a Rue Henri IV too
Cheers! Kir Royale to drink
Look at this beast. It was so yummy. I ate a lot of salmon on holiday, which is absolutely not a problem
This little cat wanted some of our lunch so of course my mother and I gave it a titbit each
My cafe liegois. Coffee and vanilla ice cream, with cold coffee and chantilly cream. Delicious
Walking back over the river to go home
I liked the reflection in this photo. I like Brantome a lot!
