... Gers what does one eat? Well, as it was Truffle season they had laid on a Semaine de la Truffe so that was easy and quite a bargain at €40.
Before the meal we were introduced to yet another locally celebrated drink, the Pousse Rapière. This cheeky little cocktail gets its name from the Rapière sword which was lighter than the older swords traditionally used to defend and considered an attacking weapon. This was brought back to the ...
... or the Le Puy Route which is one of the four main routes of St James in France that, in this case, starts at Puy-en-Vale in the Loire famed for its lentils. Ah, maybe one day I'll walk that route.
Onward we went to our first destination, the town of Nérac and it's market. The pretty town is situated in the northern end of Gers in the more wealthier Lot et Garonne department. We crossed the Vieux Pont over the riven Baise ...

They have a very spoilt dog who is rather cute. Lunch on the terrace & a quiet afternoon in the garden reading & chatting. Again a delightful dinner on the terrace, Her hubie does all the cooking it seems & she nags him!. But first it was champagne for my birthday. Late to bed, well ...
