Sounds of summer - 3

La Fête Nationale

The traditional fireworks are held in Gabian on the 13th, just after dark on the evening before the holiday.

The fireworks are launched from a small island in the river, lighting up the walls of the old village while crowds of people, the children carrying lanterns, watch from the bridge.

Tonight, if the thunderstorms hold off, we’ll eat paella in the open air and dance through the evening.

You have conjured a lovely picture of your day. Your corner of the world sounds like paradise to me. I always enjoy posts about your neighborhood and town. Not that I don't enjoy your lovely garden, too!
