I have just read about the word apocalypse on Words All Around and it reminded me that I haven't posted my pictures of the Apocalypse Tapestries that we saw in France. I have mentioned them but didn't know how to post pictures from an iPad (still don't). So here is my chance to revisit the wonderful trip we had.
I remember I had to put my camera on the floor and take the pictures on 2 second delay so the camera wouldn't shake when I pressed the button, hence the odd perspective.
One story we heard was that many of the tapestries were found being used for such things as horse blankets and keeping the frost off the vegetable gardens!
Each tapestry had a description of what part of the apocalypse story they represented, so it took quite a while to take them all in. There was a book about it all, with wonderful pictures, but I decided that it was too heavy to travel with. I will just have to trust in my memories, the pictures and the internet.
