After waking up late, it was sooooo quiet, no small children screaming n shouting to wake us! After Andy making us some lovely Omelettes for brunch and several cups of tea we set of to see what the village of Duras was like, we wandered through the village which seemed deserted ( like most villages in France) and into the centre where there was a pretty little centre with bars and cafés dotted around. We walked past a couple with a young girl, she looked, I looked, it was one ...
... french kissing etc said Au Revoir and we were gone!!
Rolling countryside all the way to the Le Garonde Canal at Castets-en-Dorthe which is the start for the Canal.
Biking the countryside to the Canal was a real treat, mostly downhill except when you climb up to a Village which there are plenty of. Coasting our top speed was 48km hr and with panniers its fast enough. For kilometre after kilometre there was vineyards incredible!!

Wednesday night they took me a night market where under cover in the little square there were rows of tables set up for families, a band and street vendors cooking anything and everything, A big pot of mules.

... with a shallot Jus, new season baby Pomme de terre & tomato, a large selection of cheeses, finished off with homemade sorbet, raspberry, mango & passionfruit with whipped cream. and last of all an Expresso!!! Forgot to add the selection of their own Bordeaux Rouge, Blanc, Rose.
All made with their own or with locally sourced produce and small producers.
