“Peintres dans la Rue” at Sainte Cecile, and the dimwits at Etaples

Some of us have to work on Saturdays. Unfortunately I’m one of them – and this Saturday, September 11 looks like being a busy one.

A pity, because if I could, I would like to go to Sainte Cécile, a little seaside place between Boulogne and Etaples, where I would stroll around watching other people at work. These workers, however, will be doing something far more creative and lasting than I shall on Saturday, because they are les “Peintres dans la Rue”, the artists who paint outdoors in the streets of the town, and at the end of the day hold an exhibition (and sale) of the day’s work.

If you’re interested you can find out more by phoning 03 21 84 72 18, or just turn up on the day, have a stroll and some lunch and watch people using hand, eye, imagination and talent as they create works of art.

On the other hand, I would stay well away from Etaples, where there will be a meeting of lots of poorly-endowed, silly, leather-clad males on motor bikes. Apparently the one with the smallest dick – you can tell by the amount of noise and burning rubber smoke he is able to make with his bike – wins the admiration of all the rest. You might think this a strange way to spend the day and an odd and perverse competition, but let’s be charitable to the afflicted and allow them to have their fun – preferably a long way away.
