The Beast of Gévaudan

September 15, 2018

There are varied representations of this legendary beast all over town.

It is reputed to have killed a hundred people, mostly women and children; some kind of wolf? Hound of the Baskerville?

This bridge in Monistrol d’Allier was built in 1888 by the Eiffel Company, who also built the famous tower in Paris. Note the flower boxes at the other end.

I walked close to Dallas today. A local told me the Texas city was named from here. The City of Dallas has no good explanation, so I’m going with this one.

This sculpture is of salmon in the river.

This 12th century church is simple but exquisite, built on top of a cliff.

Dinner at the gite last night- lentil salad (a local crop), sausages and mashed potatoes, fruit and cheese, and chocolate cake. With wine and good company. €32 includes the bed, dinner, and breakfast.

The 12th century church in Monistrol (there seems to have been a building boom that century ) depicts Jesus as the risen Christ as the gardener speaking to Mary Magdalene outside the tomb.

Still wandering loose in France.
