... and Lois, Bob and Mary, - this is not an endearing term for Richie McCaw). We tried to take photo but it kept moving. It's apparently a Carpenter bee! It is clumsy- keeps bumping into things like people, but it has no sting. (No! Still not talking about Richie!) Writing this at 4am in the morning while the rain is hammering down and the wind is rattling the tent. But we feel secure!! N'est-ce ...
... Sunday-afternoon-chill-after-the-Sunday -roast Movies, 'A Good Year' starring Russell Crowe. If you haven't seen it, get it. It's great. All set in the area we are staying in, its a perfect antidote to the modern busy lives we all lead (or led in my own case :-). A pic of me and Shep by the fountain in the movie is here.

... with the young blond companion. Not our scene! Hotel directed us to Asian restaurant a bit off the main (very touristy) street. Bit worried that it was empty, untill realized all the tables in the little square (most full) were there's. Lovely meal, very cheap, & even finished with shot of sake. Old city appears a jumble of streets & buildings. Houses & buildings built against the cathedral, only main door & rose window visible! Will be good to explore ...
