journees du patrimoine

This is probably the first year that I've gone out and done stuff for the Journees du Patrimoine (this year the 19th and 20th of September). Mystery Guest and I went into town to check out the Musee du Cidre and eau de vie. Sadly neither of those offered free taste tests! But they were really interesting and well done museums with lots of local history and KSam would like it cause you see what it would have been like to live in V-town back in the day! The best part was an old cider barrel carved into a bed (see picture) that this guy did in the early 1800's - he said he was inspired by Biblical verses but it was muuuuuch kinkier than it says in the Bible!

It was fun to go into museums and not pay, no long lines out here either. Just a nice afternoon with the MG-man! :-)

Cool - that means we now have to go back to actually DO the tasting! :)

MilkJam a dit…

you'll def have to come back and we'll go back there. but i don't think there is any tasting even during normal opening hours - it just didn't have any signs or anything...

but we'll do our own tasting! do they have poiré in bretagne? i loooove that stuff.
