A Festival Celebrating Times Gone By

Well after a break from my usual writing escapades, and redoing my website, I thought I would share some of my filming I took at a French festival in Normandy this summer.

As you can see in the video, during the procession, the participants are all dressed in their finest medieval regalia. They seem to be celebrating the culture and heritage of their town with great enthusiasm.

I also took some photographs, with the one above being my favourite. I thought the picture of the girl on the beautifully decorated horse had a canny resemblance to a ‘Joan Of Arc’ type figure.

Furthermore on the subject of Joan of Arc - in the local church, there is a monument to her, because in France she is venerated as a saint.
