At the exit of St-André a panel reminds of the Dutch painter Johan Barthold Jongkind (born 1819 in Lattrop), who lived here from 1878 until his death in 1891. He is regarded as the founder of the Impessionism.
We walk south along the "Chemin du Pré Soldat". The next village is called: Balbins-Ornacieux.
On the way we pass a farm.
This is what it looks like in a church.
My two beloved saint figures, Pastor of Ars and Thérèse of Lisieux, are also there.
In the recreation area at the Etang Le Marais we will have a break on a comfortable bench and watch the fishermen.
In the almost half an hour that we were there, they didn't catch anything.
We climb up a small hill towards Le Guyard.
On the hill in front of us is the village of Pommier-de-Beaurepaire.
At the church of Saint-Romain we have our lunch break. The church, which looks so Romanesque, dates from the 19th century and was unfortunately closed. Nevertheless, a picture from inside the church (from the internet):
After about two hours you will reach the stage destination: Revel-Tourdan. Here our accommodation, the Auberge L'Escapade.
It doesn't look very inviting from the outside, but - apart from annoying and noisy smokers - the stay was quite pleasant.
The village Revel-Tourdan makes a very deserted impression with some interesting houses from the Renaissance period - see for yourself!
At a corner of a house near the church we discover a small statue of St. James .
