|Bridge over the river Claise at Chaumussay|
When out walking with the randonnee club I love the opportunity it gives me to capture new and revisited places.

Here is a view of the chateau at Le Grand-Pressigny appearing to rise up through the forest - taken from the D60 - we only get this view at the end of the year when the trees are bare.
Having said that, the surroundings can trick you into believing it is sat in woodland as this summer pic shows when in fact it pretty much sits in open ground.
The second pic. is however, probably more representative of how it looked early in its history

This from 2016
Had the first rehearsal with our Christmas choir on Tuesday - twas as if we had never been away - good fun! Good to see that we are getting some additional male voices joining us - the more the merrier.

Yesterday's walk with the Le Grand-Pressigny Randonnee club took us over to Chaumussay.
We started from the village where we passed the church with one of my favourite 'Joans'
On the last part of the walk we could catch Preuilly-sur-Claise in the distance.
This property enjoys such a view.
After 10km I was quite happy to see Chaumussay appearing in the distance.

Visited Descartes market on Sunday on a crisp November day plus took a walk down to the river and through the public gardens - lovely.
This is a popular first morning outing for guests on arrival at our holiday cottage in Barrou.

For my 'Church on Sunday' on my regional blog this week I featured the church of Saint-Martin in Chambourg-sur-Indre. When I visited the church back in October I wad amused to find our Joan wearing a French football scarf. As I said in my web-page for the church, perhaps a legacy of another recent successful campaign!

On a walk around Le Grand-Pressigny on Saturday we went through the chateau where we were a little surprised to find the Megaceros was missing its impressive headgear. Not sure why -winterising perhaps?

It was good to see the people of Le Grand-Pressigny coming out yesterday to mark the WWI armistice centenary.
