I spent a very pleasant day visiting Limoges during the summer and I thought it would be nice to share a few of the photos with you.
Although I've lived here for ten years now, normally the most I see of Limoges is the airport when I'm collecting or delivering visitors, but this summer a friend wanted to go and see some of the history, so we caught a train into the center.
There is some really wonderful architecture starting with the station itself. I'm not going to bore you with names and dates - I'm sure photos will be more interesting. Limoges station by WendyMitchell You can see that it's a most impressive building.
We walked from there to the cathedral which is also very beautiful - outside and inside. They have surrounded the cathedral with the botanical gardens which makes it a lovely restful place to visit.

I must confess that I liked the gardens more than the cathedral, but that's just me. My father dragged me round so many cathedrals when I was a child that I think I've had my fill! Flowers and gardens are another matter entirely, no-one could ever get bored with those!

After the cathedral we visited the old center of Limoges which is the Butchers Quater. There are beautiful old buildings, a couple of nice restaurants and the tiny little chapel that is dedicated to the patron saint of butchers.

One of the strangest places that we found was a beautiful courtyard surrounded by medieval buildings (it would be very easy to imagine someone filming Romeo and Juliet there). The strange thing was the incredibly inappropriate shops that occupied this beautiful square! You'll see what I mean in the photos below

We managed to resist having any piercing done in a shop called 'Smack Goddess', but I thought of all my DA friends and thought you'd like a laugh!

Hi Davis - lovely to hear from you and I'm glad you're busy and well. I'm not painting so much at the moment either as I'm renovating a small house nearby ready for retirement - where I live at the moment is just too big and has far too much garden! Hope to see more of your work soon!
