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)

Thursday Doors: Chabanais

The town of Chabanais stands on the Vienne river in the neighbouring d├ępartement of Charente.

It’s about a 45-minute drive from Tranquility Base and we used to go there quite regularly for pub quizzes – until the pub in question closed down abruptly and without explanation (the inevitable rumours suggested that this may have had something to do with tax payments, or absence thereof).

So I hadn’t really seen the town in the daytime until recently, when we visited on a Saturday morning. While Madame did her thing with the quilting group, I slouched off with my camera in search of more doors for your delectation.

Although there’s not much left of the old parts of the place, it can still boast a few interesting doors, so my quest wasn’t entirely fruitless.

As it turns out, most of these images form natural pairs, such as these green doors:

And then there were these:

Two adjacent doors:

And even this single door is a double door, if you see what I mean:

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.
