|This is where a WWI observatory tower used to be in our forest. Now there is a memorial there.|
|This is a monument that I assume is associated with the cemetery a little further on. The inscription on the base says: "Passant, arrête-toi." ("Passerby, stop.")|
|The British WWI cemetary is quite small and not very accessible as there is no real place to park nearby. 98 British soldiers are buried there, and the land was a gift to the British from France to honor the soldiers who died during the war.|
|The inscription under the cross and the sword says "Their name liveth for evermore."|
|The kids were more interested by the little door where the guest book was kept.|
|FINALLY, after living here for 3 years, we stopped to take some pictures of the windmill! This is our landmark that says, "We're almost home!" It's of course no longer functional and is boarded up.|
After our quick photo op at the windmill, we continued on to a local flea market, where I found novels in English! Most of you know how hard those are to find in France (if you don't want to pay an arm and a leg, and I don't), so I couldn't resist. The girl selling them was Irish and almost didn't put them out because she figured she wouldn't find any takers - our region is not known for having many foreigners.
We made a short afternoon of it, since the kids (and we) were all still pretty worn out from Disneyland the day before.
