Cross and sunflare

Roadside cross














Remember that the Languedoc region is famous not just for cassoulet, but also the Cathars, so religion and Christianity are a big deal out this way even though it’s been a bit of a backwater for centuries. The papacy were ensconced just down the road in Avnignon, so the resultant abbeys, monasteries, castles and cathedrals that dot the landscape pay homage to an age gone by.

The image above was taken on a small dirt road near the canal where we encountered some old ladies doing washing at some old concrete basins. One wonders if they have electric light when the sun goes down…
