Yesterday at Aigues-Mortes, there was a stall selling books with interesting wooden covers with leather spines and wraparound catches. Naturally I had to have one.
The covers consist of two stout pieces of wood with a pattern cut through the top one and the one below dyed a different colour.
And here is a drawing of what it must have looked like. Drawing from www.waterhistory.org. On the way back we looked at the Abbey of Montmajor, having eaten half a baguette full of merguez which I love. Interestingly merguez are Spanish and in Spain they are far less spicy than in the south of France. Me, I like the French version.
There is talk of going to the seaside tomorrow. Not me. I have never been enthusiastic about sitting for hours on a beach. I shall stay here and try to get to grips with iWeaveit.
