30/04/2016 Out and about, with lunch at our favourite Les Routiers.
Maximum temperature 10C, minimum 3C. 47 km/h NW winds. A little hail as we returned home.
First stop was at the dechetterie (dump) to drop of some rubbish that would not recycle.
Then we went to Le Rochefoucauld to do a little shopping and get photos for our updated International driver's licence. We have French drivers licences, but need them for elsewhere out of the EU.
Grey skies all over.
La Rochefoucauld château over the rooftops.
Fields of rape seen en-route.
Arrival at St Sornin.
Self service hors d'
oeuvres starter - my choice.
I then had gigolette de lapin with salad and chips. Very filling!
Nigel had Brandade (salt cod) with chips and peas. Also I gather very filling!
Nigel then had Moelleux citron...
and I had Pain Perde with icecream.
Four courses, with wine included, €12.50 each, excellent value.
St Sornin Church and a new War Memorial.
St Sornin Church
Driving home past Marillac-le-Franc church and fountain.
This farmer was obviously stocking up his wood pile, I hope for next year!!!
