bienvenue à la Touraine

On a bike ride a few days ago, I discovered a little welcoming place along the bike route for cycle tourists to our region.  That region is the Touraine which is the area around the city of Tours (including Amboise).  It's famous for its wine, goat cheese, and now its cycling network.  This particular welcome was created voluntarily by one of the local residents just for the pleasure of those tourists passing by this tiny, yet charming village.  It offers them a place to take a breather, relax in the shade, and appreciate the display of the simple life of times gone by.  Of course what caught my eye was the old photographic portrait.
