Pictures from our wanderings

These are some pictures from the trip to Montpellier. Interestingly, we didn't take any pictures in the city itself, but a number as we wandered through the countryside.

This first is of the river in Castres. It was a dull day, but you can still see how pretty the town is.
The restaurant we went to is just out of the picture on the right.

Here we are in a small village with an amazing artist in metal. These fantastic animals are just by the road side.

We didn't ask prices, but may well go back when we want something for the garden.

Great aren't they?

Moving on to another village we find this. If you look closely you can see the bull behind the horses & in front of the young man in the black t-shirt.

This is the man in charge

The charge! All three bulls & all of the riders coming up the street at full tilt.

And off they ride we know not where!

Great show. Everybody, even the bulls, seemed to be having a great time.

Wish we could have stayed for the 'bandito' that evening. Not sure what it might have been, but I bet that it would have been fun.

I do love this country! Where else do you find things like this just by wandering around?
