A few nights ago, after Craig and Sandell arrived and we were up to 4 artists in the house, all trying to share a kitchen, we agreed to rotate cooking duties. My turn was last night, and I think I produced a passable eggplant/tomato/chickpea dish along with a cauliflower salad. The night before that, though, we had a "fellows' dinner"--VCCA feeds us once a week--at Le Petit Palais (check out that website if only for the pictures of the village), in Auvillar.
On the way up the hill to dinner, I spotted the little fellow at left. Cheryl explained that there is an annual Marche des Potiers in Auvillar every year and one year there was a "pilgrim" theme (see earlier post on the pilgrims of St. Jacques de Compostelle). The village then bought several ceramic figurines and installed them around town. I'd photographed several on an earlier exploratory walk, but I'd missed this one.
And that's it. I'll be heading out soon. And I'll check in on the other side.
