Housesitting in France, Life of adventure

A Ceramic Market in Auvillar

Looking through my draft folder as most bloggers do.  What do you know, a write up that should have been posted a month or two ago.

Here is the post on Auvillar in Autumn.  Better late than never, so they say.

A small break from unpacking and all those tedious chores associated with moving into a new home, to catching up on our time in France.  Just a few weeks ago, it seemed longer.

Our previous visit to Auvillar had been in winter during January.  It was a wettish period and even in the bare bones of winter this pretty village instilled in us an eagerness to return again to explore in the more warmish and desirable month in Autumn.  Apparently when the weather is more stable!

Which we did on more than one occasion.

This particular visit we enjoyed an unusually warmish Autumn morning in late October.  Our purpose this visit was not only to enjoy the enticing lanes with their colourful window shutters and to be drawn to beautiful 12th-century church and 15th-century houses.  Our quest was to view an ancient skill with a modern twist that held our interest this visit.

It was the raku demonstration and ceramics market.

The excellent array of ceramics from the colourful to the more subdued.  All were a joy to view surrounded by historical buildings.  It was my ideal way to spend a Sunday morning enjoying the creativity of others with the aroma of food and coffee to make us stop and indulge.

I can’t think of a better way to enjoy a Sunday morning in France, can you?

  1. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday, I agree. The light is nicely captured as well. And, who doesn’t love the look of pottery! 🙂

    On the other hand, I never look in my draft folder of my blog. Maybe it’s because I never schedule posts? I always write every blog in a Word document and copy it into WordPress to post with photos.

    1. I too don’t schedule posts Liesbet. I just like to have a few blog posts in my drafts box in case of “I can’t think of anything to write about” moments.

    1. They were and I could’ve easily brought quite a few if the exchange rate had a more favourable leaning towards the kiwi dollar!!
