Not long ago we went to France and while we were there at a Barrand Cousinade or a distant cousin family reunion on my husbands side we learned to play a new game. In Europe it is very popular and is played everywhere in the big city parks or even in the countryside like we did. It was hard to actually concentrate on the game when you have a view like we did in the small town in far eastern France only 3 miles from the Swiss border.

There in France they call this yard bowling game Petanque pronounce “pet-on-k”. In Italy and even here in the states they call it bocce.
