Taking the Old Girl Out

We decided to take the old girl out (our vintage camper) for a run out as she has just past her M.O.T. and I mean just!!!! She is 27 years young, so we were delighted and  had in our minds to head for Aubrac but on route found ourselves in a small village called Muret Le Chateau. We stopped and decided to have a walk round the village and wow what a fabulous happy little place. Outside houses, under via ducts and on balconies, various figures which looked like they were made from paper mache were dotted throughout  the village. Not a soul to be seen though to ask what they were all about. Have since tried to find some information but failed.  We then moved on to Villecomtal where we spent a couple of nights but will tell you about that later. xx

Beautiful village and glad to hear the camper van is out on the road

The figures remind me of that old television series "Tales of the unexpected" Spooky!!!

That is so interesting! And kind of spooky too, since there were no live people around!
