All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go!

Today, according to the Facebook entry Office-de-Tourisme-du-Pays-de-Richelieu, there was to be a Marche Noel in the town of Azay-le-Rideau.

Never ones to miss a good afternoon out, we had an early lunch and set off.

From the outset it was obvious that there was nothing at all happening in Azay le Rideau, other than people like us walking round in search of the missing Marche Noel. Not to be beaten we went a little further north, over the Loire to Langeais.

Langeais dates back to Medieval times, with its imposing chateau, built on the banks of the Loire by Colin's favourite builder and bruiser, Foulque Nerra (or in English, Fulk lll, Count of Anjou).
Its narrow streets.....

and an equally imposing church which we decided to visit...
It was locked.........!!

We had noticed a poster in one of the shop windows in Langeais advertising an event in Pernay...
but we hadn't the heart to face defeat again. Instead we headed home for a cup of tea.
Tomorrow we'll stay at home!
