... rental about 3:00 for a light snack after three hours of touring. We then walked the grounds and hillside forest area next to the property which provided a great view of the surrounding areas. We gathered some kindling for a fire in the fireplace of our rental. The old stone cottage is pretty cool in the evening and a fire in the living room feels great.

Thunderstorms in the distance but only the odd drop of rain. Forecast is not good for a week. Tomorrow we go to ...
... After getting some Province red wine and Camembert, and a baguette we took the bus home as droplets of rain began to fall. Once we were on board the bus those droplets turned into a heavy downpour, the heavens opening and drenching the unsuspecting tourists and locals alike. As we drove past, we saw people wringing out their clothes under shelters. We got to the hotel, wet but happy. The rain stopped and we enjoyed our wine on the ...
