Despite the fact that France is a secular country we still have Bank Holidays for the feasts of the Ascension and Pentecost. Add those to May Day and V.E. day and we have quite a few days off in May! On Ascension Thursday we explored Varen and picnicked by the banks of the Aveyron. Here are some photos taken in and around Varen.

I love stenciled letters and numbers. These were on a bench in the church.
