belated bastille day

(photo belongs to the free-lance star)

apparently fredericksburg, virginia–a self-titled “itty-bitty city” not far from me–has a sister city in france: frejus. this, of course, called for a bastille day celebration. while the city did not shoot off fireworks, it did have a band from frejus play. the celebration actually continues into the weekend, and walking around the city last night, i was captivated by the french flags still flying everywhere.

being ever-inquisitive, i had to learn more about frejus. located on the cote d’azur, the small commune has some interesting attractions: nearby lie a beach resort, a deadly dam, and mary magdalen’s head.
