THE ARDECHE IN FRANCE (3)

The village in the Ardeche where we spent our holidays last month was called Vals-les-Bains, it has only about 3500 inhabitants but it was once very famous for their water that has good influence on your health and the spa’s they had, it was like the spa’s we have now, only less modern. They once were visited by the rich and famous, we were told even King Louis the 14th came to Vals with a horse and carriage to improve his health, today they just have normal tourists from all over the globe.

They have an old natural source in the middle of a park that is spraying every 6 hours. We went to see it one day and it was quite fun, we were all waiting for the water to start spraying, lots of people got wet ofcourse as they came too close to the spray.

AND SO IT BEGINS
AND IT GROWS
AND GROWS
AND IT GROWS UP TO 6 METERS HIGH, SOMETIMES EVEN TO 8 METERS HIGH

If you know it started spraying for the first time about 200 hundred years ago I think it is quite amazing.

Have a fun week and thanks for stopping by.
