UNUSUALLY, I’m up first and getting some work done when Magali, then Margaret, comes downstairs.
We have coffee and chat for a while then we pack our bags and hit the road for the 260-odd mile drive to Beaumont en Véron (near Avoine). First stop, though, is brunch at a McDonalds – we’re always surprised how much better the fare is here than it is back home in the UK.
Another stop and I take over driving and we rock up at our pals’ Dominique and Marie-Claude’s about 7.30pm. We’re staying at Dominique’s mother’s place – a beautiful old mill three or four miles away and take our bags there, then back into Beaumont en Véron for dinner. Marie-Claude has made a huge spread of grub.
We head back to our digs sometime after midnight…first of the French shows is locally tomorrow 🙂
