30 years today we were married at St Lucia, Brisbane! Doesn't seem nearly that long!

Nathalie, our hostess, organized a small gathering with the other guests, on the terrace at Lys de Castelnaud. Had Mumm champagne we'd bought earlier & fruit liquors that Nathalie's husband makes (orange & walnut). Then in to La Roque Gageac to La Belle Etoile - recommended by Nathalie when I first booked the accomodation. Booked the restaurant as a surprise for our anniversary.

Lovely meal - mushroom soup as pre-entree; prawns on ginger pastry and crayfish & egg in a morel mushroom soup; beef & lamb with lovely vegetables, sauces, & seasonings and cooked to perfection for each of us; raspberries with a custard lightly flavoured with lemon & a chocolate trilogy (ice cream, fried chocolate ball, & chocolate souffle). More champagne as starter - Taittinger this time! - then switched to a local red recommended by the waiter.

A fantastic day, finished off with a great meal experience.
