Flag of France  , Poitou-Charentes,
Thursday, October 17, 2013

Once again we find ourselves chilling out with J&J, with whom we got married in 1980 in Henley upon Thames. As always, it is lovely to be here.  
On Friday Megan cooked a terrific Gesier du canard confits - that's duck gizzards in duck fat for those that ne parle pas Francais.
On Saturday I drove the tractor for a while, harrowing a newly ploughed field. We had to sow some winter wheat before the  rain came.

Sunday we went mushroom hunting. People here get crazy excited about mushroom picking season. In France every pharmacy has an expert on mushrooms - here he is putting the edible ones back in the bag for us. He ticked us off for not having a proper basket.
