Sorry I missed out on the last couple of month's photos - my plan was to come back to visit you all later, but later never happened. We've had a busy July and early August with our festival and recording studio work and then the most glorious two weeks in France with our caravan. Then straight off to Germany for a short tour and somehow September has now vanished too. I thought I was getting myself ready early for this month's challenge but no......

We spent a lovely day in Chauvigny in France at a mediaeval fair - there are ruins in the town of 5 different castles dating back to those times and the park was a blaze of colour and sound for the festival - these musicians were superb, singing and playing old instruments to a background sound of knights jousting and youngsters learning how to properly wield the swords they'd just bought.
Mind you, everything looks bright and colourful in the sunshine.
Upside downMy geography days are long behind me so I can never remember if these are tites or mites! In the petrified caves near Saumur. In this particular cave they leave objects under the falling droplets which then get coated, or petrified, and come out looking like porcelain. The smell was fabulous.

OK, so not quite ink, but at least it's writing of a sort. I was looking for a pic of a cool tattoo - I've a girlfriend in Germany who has several tattoos of quotes from Jayne Austen on her arms and tummy but I didn't want to embarrass her by asking to photograph them. Anyway, there's lots of this splendid graffiti around the University area in Belfast ... It makes a change from our usual political murals ( or muriels as they're know here)

I got a lovely bag of goodies from a beekeeper in Germany who organises one of our concerts there - honey, royal jelly night cream and some honey lip balm as well as a bottle of honey wine which I"m really looking forward to trying. But I didn't realise it until we arrived home that the bag is covered in little bees :) So cute.
