Daniel's Depot was locked up tight when Lucie and I walked by it this morning. All the wheelbarrows were idle, all the heavy equipment inside. There will be no moving buckets of sand or roofing tiles today. It's May 1st...a holiday here in France that celebrates workers. Everything is closed; everyone has the day off. Too bad the rain started just as we were arriving home. It's a good morning for taking a nap. I suppose for the hard-working builders that's just as good as a sunny day for a picnic!
