Out and about in Epeigné-les-Bois

6 August 2009

Le Lézard Vert, Epeigné's shop and bar, is changing hands. Sale notice here. Clemence, who is handing over to Stéphanie and Nacer, held farewell drinks Thursday evening. The shop will be closed Friday but reopens on Saturday morning. The new owners plan to add a restaurant.

Source Saint-Aignan: Epeigné's premier tourist attraction

Water from the Source Saint-Aignan is claimed to be good for eczema and other skin complaints – from time to time people visit the source to collect water.


Green light

The early morning light was brilliant with a deep blue sky as the photo of the church and those of the lake (below) shows. Now Friday morning (8th) is completely different after a storm yesterday evening around 9pm. It must be a good 15˚C degrees cooler (mid-afternoon temperatures on Thursday afternoon must have hit 35˚C) and overcast.
