So as we live nearby (5mn by feet), we buy what we need for the lunch and for the week also (we often go also to the market of Montgiscard on Sunday morning).
Today it was : radish and beet, beefsteak and garden peas, strawberries and Chantilly cream.

Built in the 17th, 18th or 19th century, they are named as "Wheat Castle" because during this period many families make richer on wheat farming and trading.
This period was also called the Yellow Gold Age.

This big and ugly building rises in the heart of the village.
This was a huge set of grain elevators owned by a local farming cooperative.
Bought by the commune, it is now disused but nobody knows what to do with.
It you have ideas and also 1 million €, you're welcome.
All the story in French here.

Sunday, it was Glass Recycling activity. As you can see that a good citizen of my village and I follow correctly the rules regarding waste management.
Main of glass I throw in this big container is bottles of wine.
You think it's obvious because I'm french. But it's not the case : I throw also bottles of beer ;-).
Ok, Ok, the picture shows a bottle of wine !! By the way, this wine was really good.

This church was rebuilt in the 14th century after a blaze due to the Black Prince - Oh what a terrible name !
It is fully automated and able to play around 1000 melodies.
The picture is really not easy to shoot because the church is located on a small place with lot of houses around.

This is the East part of the highway called "Entre Deux Mers".
It links Bordeaux to Narbonne from Atlanic Ocean to Mediterranean Sea, so that why it's called "Entre Deux Mers" or "Between Two Seas".
Mostly used during holidays.
It passes nearby Baziege, sometimes we can hear it as background noise when we're in the garden and there is a specific wind, but it's another story.

The Sainte Eutrope Chapel known in Baziege as Sainte Colombe is located in a charming glen outside the village.
It is a small building in bricks which is typical of our area.
Pilgrims can stop here on the way to Saint Jacques de Compostelle.
On April 12 1814, there were a battle here during the retreat of the army of Napoleon.
