Le cabanon

Little buildings like these dot the landscape in the vineyards around us. They're cabanes de vignes and served as shelter for vineyard workers and/or a place eat lunch back before cars and trucks made commuting out to lunch (whether to a restaurant or home) practical. They also were a place to store tools. Most of them have been abandoned over the years and are in various states of decay. This one, out behind our house, is locked up most of the time. I don't know what's inside.

It's been repaired and patched over the years, but it's still standing.

Today is Beaujolais Nouveau day! I'm planning a run to the supermarket this morning to check out what's available and to bring some home. The wind howled all night and it rained some more. I'm hoping that weather system is on its way out by the time I am. The carport roof is still intact.


  1. Yay for the carport (and the roofer). The stonework on that wall is beautiful. I remember those Beaujolais Nouveau days from our years in California. I never hear of them here. But we have a nearby wine bar/seller that must be doing something.

  2. Happy Beaujolais Nouveau Day!

  3. Last night was a good test for the carport roof. Enjoy the new wine!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
