We drove to a couple more Bastide towns today. The first was Montflanquin, which is a fairly small place, but again has lots of stone cottages, a main square in the centre of town, views across the valleys etc. Garth bought a sandwich in a small cafe in the village, and for less than $6, got a baguette at least ten inches long, four inches across and choc-a-block full of ham, Brie, and salad.

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 ...
