14 juillet 2019

Another great celebration yesterday commemorating the storming of the Bastille in 1799.  For this reason, Americans tend to call this Bastille Day but in France it's simply called quatorze juillet (14th of July).  It may appear that the rockets are emanating from the château but they were actually launched from the little island in the Loire in front (Ile d'Or).
