I was delighted, yesterday evening, to stumble across a beautiful opening ceremony in the next village. The residents were celebrating the arrival of a little train that will run round the village taking visitors from their campsites to the various beaches and markets in the surrounding area. There was a proper red, white and blue ribbon that was cut by the Mayor with scissors that rested on a pillow. Smaller pieces of the ribbon were then cut and presented to various important individuals to sport in their breast pockets.
I loved the ceremony all the more just for the simple fact that it elevated and celebrated an event that in a larger town may have gone unnoticed. Here, there were gazebos, drinks and a gathering of people to participate in the maiden voyage of this little train.
Celebrate all things mes amis! Whether it be with cups of tea and a cup cake or with champagne and caviar!
