|Dave had Foie Gras for his entree.|
|I had blue cheese wrapped in phylo with a caramelized pear. (YUM!)|
|Jerry skipped the entree and had a stuffed chicken leg.|
|Dave and I both had the Duck confit for the main.|
|Dee had a steak and mashed potatoes.|
Saturday: Sunshine today! Yippee!
This town is so charming. Pretty much a fairytale setting for any medieval movie. Today was the market day. We got a little bit of a late start but we went down to the main old town and there were vendors everywhere! Breakfast of Cafe au lait at the bakery with a croissant and we were good to go.
|Cemetery, looks really really old!|
Jerry had on his Iowa Fleece and it started raining. We ducked under a canopy and a woman said, "You always find Iowa fans where ever you go". Ann and Doug from Iowa City. She a retired teacher, her husband worked at the University. They came to France to visit their granddaughter and are leaving on Monday or Tuesday. Fun to meet a friendly face. Hi Ann and Doug!
This town, as we have indicated before, is all about Foie Gras (Goose Liver) so we found in one square the Geese statue.
|David is actually smiling in this photo! The Goose Goosed him|
Dee and I were sick of hanging out with men, so we sent them back to the hotel and we went alone. First a stop at the local Church. 11th Century.
|Lit another candle for my dolly Patty.|
Shopped some, but forgot to take pictures because we were having so much fun. After a rest, we went out for dinner.
We tried to stay here when we were looking but no elevator.
|First a kir cocktail.|
|Fried Foie Gras. Wonderful!|
|Foie Gras pate with pickled onions.|
|Grilled Duck Breast.|
|Sea Bream, Wheat Risotto and pureed parsnips|
|Fried Duck Liver.|
Tomorrow we have arranged for our driver Christophe to pick us up and drive us to Carcassone which is about 3 hours away. We could take the train, but it involved some transfers and a 7 hour train trip. Plus I suspect that Jerry and David want to ride in the Tesla again! A bientot!
