PAELLA NIGHT

 On our last night in Saignon this trip, it was the 12th of July. France annually celebrates Bastille Day on the 14th, but this year the French team had a real shot in the World Cup and the final was on the 14th. So the towns and villages moved the celebration to the Saturday before. Saignon has a paella dinner, served in their municipal parking lot. With wonderful paella, cheap, plentiful and delicious Rose wine, beer and pastis. After the feast, and it was a feast, there was a pair of DJs and dancing under the stars. It was almost too much fun, What a way to leave Saignon!
 Laura, a former waitress at Maison Solveig who has moved on to a better job. She came back for this.
 Our little party of four at the table. Mary got ahold of my camera a lot that night.
 Austin, Mary, Frederic and Betty
 Our first of many dances.
 A quick tango with Laura.
 Happy spectators.
 The Twist never left.
 A bit later after Mary pushed a few buttons on the camera.
 Dancing is hard work......but fun,
 Doing the chicken dance. I shot enough French Canadian weddings in Vermont to even know the steps.
Mary and Frederic.
