Fête XVIIIth Century - the Flag Throwers

Copyright 2009 Monte Carlo Daily Photo. All rights reserved.

You often see a group of flag throwers at festivals in the south of France. This group come from Ventimiglia just across the border in Italy. In fact, come to think of it, all the groups I've seen are Italian.

This is the last day of the 18th century festival. Thanks so much to everyone who has visited.

Tomorrow - we'll stay on le rocher for a day or so as there are a few good things I'd love to show you and after that - we go on a boat trip to Cap Ferrat and Villefranche.

You top photo looks like a flag has grown legs.

I look forward to the upcoming photos of your trip by boat to Cap Ferat.

I never quite understood flag throwing.

Some more great festival fotos! It must have been a great time! I'm just glad I don't have to put on yellow tights!
