Table Setting, Medieval Style

This week, Cee’s theme has come round again to anything that might be found in a kitchen. Strictly speaking, I suppose, this table setting in the restored refectory of the Abbaye de La Réau isn’t exactly kitchenware. There again, where else would the dishwasher be?

Misty Morning

Early morning mist on the river Vienne at Chabanais (which thoughtfully also provided the inspiration for an earlier post in this weekly challenge)

The Tower

From ground level, the stonework of the tower of this church at Chabanais looks particularly imposing:

The Bridge

As the early morning mist starts to lift from the Vienne river at Chabanais, the bridge in the distance beyond the weir becomes visible.

Bo’sun

I’m not really remotely a pet person, but this is Bo’sun and he belongs to my daughter and her family.

The Nave

Cee’s theme this week is ‘Internal Walkways’. I hope that the aisle of a church counts – in this case, that of St Mary’s in Beverley, Yorkshire.

Pastoral

Living, as we do, in the depths of the French countryside, it was never going to be a problem to find an image to respond to Cee’s theme for this week of ‘All Things Farm-Related’.

However, there’s only so much interest you can wring out of yet another picture of a tractor, so instead here is a landscape from just up the road. The item in the foreground is a hay feeder, used in the winter months when the sheep don’t have freshly growing grass to chew on. This photograph was taken in early summer this year, so no need for the winter silage.
