18/11/2018 A lunch and a drive last Friday - I am a bit behind myself!
Maximum temperature today 5C, minimum 1C. Dry; 22km/h North-easterly winds gusting up to 47 km/h. Very cold and our first frost this season.
It is going to be colder tomorrow!!
I love these forest areas with the autumn colours...
but sadly some areas are spoilt by the wind turbines!
Driving through Vadelle.
Arriving at Marcillac-Lanville, this is one of the pilgrim routes and the cutouts are here to remind us.
Inside the restaurant, Les Nymphéas...
I was quite taken by the African screen.
Onion soup for starters. They brought a bowl to the table to help ourselves and it was so good we both had two helpings.
I forgot to take a photo of the second course which was chopped ham, salad and feta. This was the main course of fish and it was delicious.
We had three slices of different cheeses and French bread, before finishing off with a coffee eclair (my choice from a selection) and espresso coffee.
All served with a decanter of wine for €14 each. Great value.
Driving home we saw this house covered in Virginia creeper. Wonder how many insects live in there!
Back home today; probably the last of the flowers with the weather change - Calendula...
A visit from the European robin (Erithacus rubecula) early this morning.
I have updated my bird blog HERE.
