Return to Vaux sur Mer

Just had a week in Vaux, nr St Palais, with good friends Dave n Sue who have made their home out there.

The walk into the village from Dave n Sues takes you through a well maintained local park. The village hall, host to the choir in which Sue sings, was also hosting a local quilt display:

Vaux has a small, intimate and picturesque beach. A wonderful short walk along the coast is the larger beach of St Palais - situated close to the town, catering for tourists and with great eateries. A little to the north of St Palais is big beach, a superb length of sandy beach with a gentle slope into the sea for safe swimming and catering for both textiles and naturists.

Also caught up with another 'Musical Thursday'. Romanesque churches of the Agglomeration Royan Atlantique welcome every Thursday evening in season, concerts which include internationally renowned artists and young talented musicians.The season offers a wide range of music for all tastes.The program combines architecture and music, with churches offering incredible acoustics. We caught the concert in L'Eguille sur Seudre at the Eglise St Martin. Performing were the Compass Trio of violin, alto violin and cello.

The week also included a trip to a local village fete with local groups delivering both traditional and pop music to the delight of the audience. Marilyn and I 'twisted the night away' with villagers, followed by a wonderful firework display.

and to cap the week off nicely Marilyn agreed to have another birthday :)

all will be explained in due course!
