Going Back in Time

The Norman invaders
We went to a Mediaeval Festival in the walled city of Domfront.Despite the drizzle, there were loads of people in costume selling traditional Norman crafts. I'm sure Normandy in the 15th Century was much less picturesque in reality, but still, I love anything like this.

Ooh, I was in Normandy last week - already seems like ages ago. I was actually staying in the Loiret, but we visited family of friends in Normandy. Love your photos and wish I'd seen everything that day.
