Short video clip of the Albas village Fete in August 2017 with Alexander and Felicity.
27th festival in Montclera in the Lot (near Cazals). We used to call them a steam rally in the UK but it’s the same sort of thing. Lots and lots of old machinery and some interesting newer stuff too.
Pont Valentre, Cahors
The same evening as the Blues Festival were the Bastille Day fireworks. A hugely impressive display based on and around the Pont Valentre.
The Fabulous Trio
Went into Cahors with Alexander to see some of the Blues Festival. This was another first because although it has been on for many years we have never managed to get over there (it’s only half an hour away).
They have some paid shows but also have some bands playing for free at various points around the city. We came across the Fabulous Trio and they were brilliant. However, they seem to be based in the North of France and most of their gigs are a long way from here.
We have lived in Albas for thirteen years and never once visited the Autocross, which is an event that takes place every year and is only 15 minutes from the house. This year (2017) Alexander and I made the effort to get over there…
