Last weekend we had one hundred cyclists come to visit us. They were spending a day as part of a local rallye event, cycling around the immediate area answering questions and doing other "silly things". Prior to arriving at Gennetay they had "fought" the battle of Trafalgar with water balloons being sent over by our son and his friends. I'm glad to report that history DID repeat itself and the right side won!
The English team
And the French team
They had a fun battle and a decent number of people ended up in the river. They then bicycled over to us where they had 30 minutes to paint a picture with a number of items included. Like a total moron I forgot to take photos of the pictures but some of them (ten in all) were lovely.
The teams spread out around the garden.
And got down to work. Then they were off again...
The day was followed by a dinner to which we were invited and it was enormous fun. Our house is well hidden and many people locally have never seen it so it is wonderful when we have rallye's like this coming by.
