... the mountain it was sunny!
And our meal at Chez David was fab. All four of us had magnificent meals.
We left sadly on Wednesday morning. We won't be back for nine months. It has been such a joy to have friends in this part of France, and the opportunity to speak English!

We headed back to the lobby to use the Internet, swap photos, update Facebook statues and pics, and email home. We were trying to treat as much of the day as possible as a rest day and do a little as we could of our chores. But, the bikes still needed ...
