Having The Possibility To Shop… In A Cave Of Sorts.

It was a beautiful cloudless day in late August 2012.

Himself, a friend and both families kids are spending the day canoeing on the river further upstream from La Roche-en-Ardenne.

I didn’t think it was going to be any great success trying to negotiate  canoe with crutches in tow,  so elected to stay in town and visit the castle on the hill.

In one of the few “rooms” (it was slightly more like a modified cave) there was a shop selling local handwork and souvenirs and since it didn’t  involve steep steps I went inside to have a look around.

There were all sorts of thing such as medieval style drawings on stone or wood, jewellery and knick-knacks.

The only thing that appealed were the little owl pendants but I wasn’t really in the mood to buy anything like this today so just had a good look around. There was also a bar (I didn’t go inside) and maybe there were more rooms downstairs  but I’m not certain because I couldn’t reach those.
