Blaye Park in September

9 x 12 Pastel on Wallace paper
When I stayed at No. 16 Bed and Breakfast in Blaye, France, I had a view of this pretty little park that was across the street from my bedroom window. This is one part of the "U" shaped path that curves through the park. This is a very lovely, peaceful park. I sometimes took a book and sat on a bench to read. The teenagers gathered there during what I think was a 2-hr lunch period every day. They would get off their school bus (that looked like our city bus), wander the town or hang out in the park, then get back on the bus and return to school. They were not a rowdy group of kids. The park was still peaceful with them there.
