How we managed to get out of our chairs, and amble a short distance away to plop ourselves down in another set of lounge chairs, is a mystery.

... was on the other side of the trees and could be heard. But even that didn’t seem to matter, and we enjoyed a very pleasant picnic. The baguette was every bit as good as we could have hoped for.
