14 down, 7 to go

I knew there would be no shortage of white stone Norman churches to photograph this month - here are 2  within 4 km of our house - I think Bellefontaine is the prettier.
I was less confident about being able to find a maze, though. Fortunately, a compulsory part of every trip to Normandy is a visit to Le Village Enchantee, also in Bellefontaine. It has certainly enchanted my kids, although the novelty wore off 2 years ago for P and me. They have added some new attractions for this summer season, including this inflatable maze. Result! That's another one ticked off.

This 'outdoor stairway'

and this fountain were scavenged in Ducey; a really pretty town which we visited for a vide grenier (car boot sale) and fair.

All I have left are:
a roadside stall;
movie poster;
a pier - I might struggle with this, as they are not a feature of the Norman coast
a bride - no weddings on the horizon for me this year so I don't know if I'll manage this one.
a train;
an historical landmark;
 something representing my country  - I know I will be able to get these when we go up to the Paralympics. By the Way - I'm so proud to be British this summer. This time last year, London was in the grip of riots, now we are 3rd in the Olympic Medal table. What a fantastic Olympics! If you read my Storytelling Sunday post you'll know how

The churches and stairs are gorgeous!!! And the maze is so fun.
Best of luck with the pier, but also don't forget about the possibility of a heart shaped stone. Several people have found one already.

What a great maze - I thought that one would be hard, too, and was planning to use a trail. But I found a labrynth instead -hoping to post it later this week.
