I am not feeling too well at the moment, but on Sunday i decided to go out on our French "Heritage day ". I went to visit the Château du champ de Bataille, close to my home.
This Château belongs to Mr Gracia a famous french interieur decorateur.
My husband was working on that day, but i had a lovely "promenade" in this beautiful and romantic place.
Early in the morning, i decided to go to the mill and have a horse carriage trip in the country.
These horses are Percheron and they are used to do the fish race from Boulogne to Paris. In the old days , Paris got it's fish from Boulogne (north east of France) and the carriages had to go fast, to get the fish fresh in Paris; this race takes 24 hours and they change horses every 20 kilometres.
for the race they use a two seat carriage which is lighter. We were eight persons plus drivers;
the cows were curious and scared at the same time
back to the mill for a "crèpes and Normand cider " lunch!
i bought some flour to make some bread.
by the way... The mill is called "Moulin AMOUR"! what a romantic day!!!
i wish you a lovely week.
