After a short break, we reopened again in the afternoon of Monday 13 July. This morning, Bastille Day, two ladies joined us for morning prayer at 8.30. And a couple of others have stopped by during the day.
The weather is still very hot, over 30 degrees, and the village exceptionally quiet. But then our neighbour reminded us that, not only is it a holiday, but that the Tour de France was passing today within about fifteen kilometres from here. Everyone has gone to watch. We should have gone too, since Chris Frome is wearing the Yellow Jersey today.
