Neither splashing paint nor rolling ones

Spent most of the week going to a wedding and exploring the Bordeaux countryside – had a fantastic time!  The only thing remotely associated to the hobby was a visit to one of the many fortifications Vauban constructed – Fort Médoc.   The fort was built in the 17th century to secure the defense of Bordeaux from an attack through the river Gironde, it formed part of a number of fortifications on the river.



Sebastien Le Prestre de Vauban is one of the most important military engineers of the latter 17th century and was an expert on fortifications.  I suggest you have a read here if you have never heard about him.  His fortifications typically have a star shape of different layers and angles that allows the defence of them to be more efficient.


Vauban was not the only attraction of the area!


/Just having fun!
