On the Outer
These birds, geese and lots of ducks were around the entrance to Montsalvat. We had time to kill so we took photos of the birds. This one put up a lovely show with it’s feathers. I think it is a Peacock, but I am not sure. I do love the colours of them. So beautiful.
This walkway is so cute and seems so French, I’ve never been to France, but I imagine it would look like this in places. I do think Montsalvat has been inspired by that country. An artists country and a little bit of it here. I have no idea what is in that room above the walkway, but it doesn’t look very big.
This little Church is out the back. It makes sense for there to be a Church in a place where lots of people want to get married. I think Montsalvat is a wonderful place, but you can’t help thinking it is all about making money and the reasons it was set up originally have become secondary. It is sad really.
Anyway, back to the Church. It is really tiny and I imagine it wouldn’t hold many people, so I can’t see people with lots of guests getting married in it. We didn’t go inside this time. There was a woman there photographing another woman’s two children and she was very loud, and so were the children. It was really annoying. It did put a damper on the serenity of the place. Tell me, someone please, why do people feel the need to talk to children like they are stupid creatures?
This is the pool. It says it isn’t for swimming, but I think people would swim in it. It has ladders into it, and it looks like over in the corner there was once also a little shop. It would have been fantastic once, not that it isn’t any more.
There are also galleries there, I didn’t really go into them. It would have been amazing once, have I said that before? As I stated yesterday, I would like to spend more time there. Can I get over how much they can’t get over themselves, that is what remains to be seen.
