The 15th August is a popular bank holiday in France and in our area people make the most of it. This year it fell on a Tuesday and it definitely looked like plenty of people did just that by taking the Monday off work and having a lovely long weekend. This is called to "faire le pont" or bridge the gap between the weekend and the bank holiday by using a day's leave.
There are many events going on around us, undoubtedly the biggest being the brocante and display of old cars at Lesigny.
How many can you identify and which would be your favourite?
I'm torn between the red Renault 4 and the E-type!
We rounded the day off with a picnic with live music at a friend’s house and were rewarded with a fabulous sunset. Happy days!
