Yesterday was the perfect day for the Fete du Thoureil, an annual celebration of life on the river Loire, its boats, people and traditions. Le Thoureil is our nearest riverside village and is a beautiful tranquil place that comes alive with events such as this. The normally quiet and beautiful village was packed with people enjoying the sunshine, sharing a glass of wine or a locally brewed beer and just sitting watching the lovely wooden boats sailing along the river.
It was a lovely day. We walked down with local friends and neighbours and sat watching the world and the boats go by for a couple of hours with a chilled beer in hand.
