Of Statues and Canals

....well, gargoyles perhaps!

Just a sample of some of the photos I have taken in the Narbonne and Beziers 


I love how these two fellows are reacting !  Just not sure to what?!

I love old buildings and the way they have often been decorated!

These were on the doors of the cathedral in Beziers!

And I had no idea that this is where the Canal du Midi was situated!

It must be such a relaxing way of seeing the countryside!

(As opposed to riding a bike! LOL!)

When I win the lottery I will treat all my friends to a holiday 

on the Canal du 


Would you like to come with me?

I'll need someone to help me through the locks!

Happy days!

Our friends did a canal holiday a few years ago and said it was great fun. I'll try!

I'll be there with bells on!! I love all the gargoyles especially those two guys by the doorway, I wonder what their story is. The canal looks so beautiful and peaceful.

Oh yes - I'm in! I Love all those old buildings with the figures sculptured on them - I did an old architectural unit just so I could have them as eye candy for a few months, lol! Loved it - they are definitely on my wish list of things to see before I die!!! Some of those sculptors were amazing!!

Sounds like a fab way to use your lotto money! (Don't forget to buy a ticket). I love that second photo, with the support sculptures. One of them's complaining about his aching back and the other is bored out of his mind. Hilarious!
