Blois

Vienne Light – Lumière de Vienne

There was the strangest light today about 3.30 pm. Vienne is the name of the neighborhood on the other side of the Loire. The spire belongs to the church of Saint Saturnin.

Il y avait vraiment une lumière étrange aujourd’hui vers 15h30. Vienne est le quartier de Blois qui se trouve de l’autre côté de la Loire. La flèche est celle de Saint Saturnin.

A Bench with a View – Banc avec vue

It’s the Church of Saint Nicholas in Blois, one of its most recognizable monuments.

C’est l’église de Saint Nicolas à Blois, l’un des ses monuments le plus connu.

The Blue Mobylette – La mobylette bleu

We saw this at the market on Saturday and it brought back memories of the Vespa Ciao Bravo I bought when I first moved to France in 1975.  Moby, is a model of moped by the French manufacturer Motobécane made during the second half of the 20th century. The Mobylette was launched in 1949 and was manufactured until 1997, with production numbers exceeding 14 million with peak production in the 1970s, averaging around 750,000 annually. The word “Mobylette” has since become something of a genericized trademark in the French language, referring to mopeds in general. (Thank you Wikipedia).

Nous avons vu cette belle mobylette bleue au marché samedi. Elle me rappelait ma première acquisition d’une Vespa Ciao Bravo en 1975 lorsque je suis arrivée en France.
