Guess whos's shopping at Camel stop in the Lecrin valley ?

Last tuesday, I was at my friend Gym's shop Camel Stop. It was one of my lucky days 
again, as her friend Roger had prepared a delicious lunch for us. Although it was
a bit windy, we decided to have tea on the roof terrace under the Morroccan tent.
As we were sipping our mint tea like lazy cats under the sun, I noticed 3 girls
 were heading to the shop. One of them was very pretty and funnily, her face
 looked very familiar to me. But then I thought, can't be her.... I'm imagining things.

Mardi dernier, j'étais à la boutique Camel Stop de mon amie Gym. J'ai eu encore
de la chance parce que son ami Roger nous avait préparé un délicieux déjeuner.
Malgré le vent, on s'est installés sur la terrasse sur le toit, sous la tente marocaine,
pour prendre un thé à la menthe. On était bien, comme des chats paresseux au soleil,
et d'en haut, je vois 3 filles se diriger vers la boutique. L'une d'entre elles est très jolie et
c'est drôle parce que son visage me paraît très familier. Et puis je me dit que me fais 
des idées...ce ne peut pas être elle....

But then as we went down the stairs, I told Roger but of course, this is her,
this the actress who plays Lady Mary in Downton Abbey ! He looked at me with
a questioning look because he doesn't watch Downton Abbey and neither does Gym,
so I told them, oh I must lend you the DVD....I'm a big fan of Downton Abbey, you see !

So guess, what happens next....we asked her if would she please accept to take
a photo with us ? And she was so gracious and extremely simpatica about it....
She was also delighted to have found the perfect gift at Gym's shop, Camel Stop.

Alors qu'on descend l'escalier, je dis à Roger mais si bien sûr que c'est elle, 
c'est l'actrice qui joue Lady Mary dans Downton Abbey ! Il me regarde d'un air
interrogateur parce qu'il ne connaît pas la série et Gym non plus d'ailleurs. Du coup,
je leur dis qu'il faut absolument que je leur prête le DVD...Eh oui, je suis une grande
fan de cette série !

Vous devinez la suite...nous lui demandons si elle accepterait de prendre une photo
avec elle dit oui si gracieusement et en plus, c'est une fille vraiment très sympa...
Elle était aussi ravie d'avoir trouvé le cadeau parfait dans la boutique de Gym, Camel Stop.

How exciting for you. You have a good eye because I would never recognize her out of period costume and updo. Hugs. xx

My Castle in Spain said...

Hi Penny,
actually, she looked quite romantic in her straw hat so I immediately saw her in her Downton Abbey character...more modern, of course :-)

Amazing! I've never been able to get into Downton Abbey; not much time for peaceful TV viewing around here. But I think Ms. Dockery is a striking actress, and I love seeing her here, as a real, modern girl out in the world!

Amazing that you recognized her , I have no idea who she is .. I have tried to watch Downtown Abbey but just cannot get into it.. and do you know I live not far from High Clere Castle too.

How exciting to meet Michelle Dockery! I adore Downton Abbey and she is perfect in her role as Lady Mary. How lovely that she took the time to pose for some pictures!

Amy Lutz said...

How awesome. I really love the background of the shop - it looks amazing - loving the stairs!

What fun to recognize and meet the actress from Downton Abbey! We love it here, too. A dear friend in England lives next to Highclere Castle, where Downton is filmed. Her home is one of the old estate cottages.
