We're never in search of anything specific, but you never know when you might happen upon that little something you just can't live without. Mostly we just find small things - like old bar/tabac ashtrays, drink glasses, sometimes old buttons, sometimes antique pieces of pottery, toys, old books... uhm, junk!
It was a fairly hot day in May when we visited the town of Naves, which is just north of the city of Tulle. There was a Donkey Fair and a Vide Grenier there, so, off we went. Didn't buy anything, but I did get to see the donkeys ... I'm crazy about donkeys. We had some cold drinks at a restaurant across from the church, where I did the drawing above. I was interested in the trees in front of the church - they had such unusual thick trunks with interesting patterns in the bark (I guess you'd call it bark) and they were trimmed in an interesting manner.

While my Kermits enjoyed the cold drinks:
Many of the graves at the village church are in bad repair, such as the one I drew. The heart "remberance medallion" had fallen off the stone - it was rather poignant to me. The location of this church, and village, was so beautiful and so peaceful...a lovely spot to enjoy the vastness of the area.
