"Checked out by the Gendarmerie" Pellegrue by Mique

Pellegrue Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 6 photos

On new year's day we went to visit Pellegrue. After all it is an important place when you're from St-Ferme. It has the nearest bar. That bar was closed though when we arrived here. So we decided to visit the church instead. After all it is a very old church (11th century if i'm not mistaken) and we thought it might be worthwhile. Pellegrue boasts the total of 5 streets and we needed them all to wurm our way to the top of the hill and this church

But it is a very nice church and some of us decided to go and check inside. Churches around here are usually open so you can walk in and have a look around. While most were inside, Janet and i stayed outside. I had seen enough churches by now. Much to our astonishment, we saw nother car coming up and we were even more suprised to see it was the Gendarmerie (the police). Someone had called the police because there were unknown people entering the church. Then you know you're definitely in an non-tourist spot!

They drove by. Checked out the number plate on the car (Dutch) and probably decided it was too much trouble to talk english that day.. So they left us alone.

When we drove away, a person lifted his (or her) glass to us in a toasting gesture in the house on the right side of this picture. We had found our anonimous caller....

    We where probably the only tourist in town. Must be a surprise to the local folks, specially to the police!
