The plan today was to go to a nearby chateau or visit some local mines, but with all of us feeling tired, we've decided to just veg and recharge our batteries
My only outings today were two quick bike rides around town in search of some more grub (ooh, yum, found more freshly made rillettes and rilletes of duck!). The rest of the day I was either napping or planning the rest of our trip. I think all of the major outings for the rest of the trip are pretty much set after the work I've done today. The only thing that remains is to work out what we want to do in Paris ... but as they say, "Paris can wait..."
At 4pm, the kids are still in their PJ's. Janice accepts an invite with the kids to play with the across-the-street-neighbor's 4yr old son ... I chill at the house and nap ... and then we all head back over across the street from 7pm - 9:30pm for more relaxing and talking with the neighbors.
The neighbors are very kind and treat us to some fresh baked pastries and rum! He is the city 'notary', a combination of tax man / attorney / recorders office sort of position. She stays at home with the rascally (but cute) 4yr old and second newbown son. They are nearly our exact same age. Very nice couple.
Back home now for resting and sleeping. A neighborhood dog is barking very loudly tonight, the first time we've heard it on the trip. Its 10:15pm as I write this. Hopefully it quiets down soon.
