    A trip to Tours to recharge ipad and shop before revisiting the Morinières farm for it's monthly market day. Coming home with provisions fresh from the farm for the next two days we waited out thethunderstorm which finished a small heatwave of 34 degrees. At eight we were seated in L'Aigle D'Or for what turned out to be a special night of good food and some old wines.
