Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

Rambling Around Souillac .........






The quaint village of Souillac is located in the beautiful
Lot Département of south-west France.

Wonderful aged shutters on stone buildings
and many other vestiges from the medieval era



 Pretty hanging baskets and wrought-iron gas lamps
A place to sit and ponder of times long past.

with the little café in the top pic offering
plat-du-jour for  €8 .... we most certainly
sat and pondered a while
