Petanque and a Lightning Storm, Carcassonne, Aude, France - 12th August 2018

It's the night of the Perseid meteor shower maximum, but as usual the weather conspires to render the whole thing moot again. However, at least time there's some compensation by way of a spectacular lightning storm over Carcassonne. Before that, we're eating out again whilst watching a keenly-played game of petanque, and before all of that we spend a second day down at Lac de la Cavayére, for another swim in the warm, fresh water
