Beautiful morning for visiting the morning market at Descartes and taking a stroll through their lovey public garden.

Dominique and I took full advantage of being involved in the 'Fete de la Musique' in Le Grand-Pressigny last night with firstly a slightly bizarre set on the road in front of 'Chez Grand Ma' with the traffic driving in front of us, then on to the main stage before finishing off the night with a small intimate set back in the courtyard of 'Chez Grand Ma'...good fun.

This was the first such event in the village and it was buzzing, a great credit goes to the organisers, with a great ambience and it was rounded off by the excellent Angie Palmer playing into the night.

Dominique and I had our first 'public' performance last night at the 'Fete de la Musique' Le Petit-Pressigny where were the first act of the night. Good fun for us...hope our audience likes us! It was a night of diverse musical performances.
With the highlights for me being Zoe Thompson the 16 year girl from Tours' set and a rousing performance of 'Hallelujah' from the acapella group 'Entre Nous'.
It was left to Celtiqua to bring the event to a lively close after a long wait to perform.

One of the fun things about being involved the Le Blanc bouchon from a drivers prospective is the ability to disobey the rules and cause disruption. With well organised marshalling by the motor cyclists there was no need to stop at junctions and parking was 'as you want'. Like on the middle of a mini roundabout...
or across a junction.
