Cooling Down Here
The weather has cooled significantly here this afternoon. There must be a high pressure front moving in from the north. We've had winds all day, the sky is very blue, but it's feeling like winter again.
Neil and Carol left after our French lunch at home which consisted of baguettes from the patiserie around the corner; wonderful Brebis, Roquefort and chevre fumiere cheese; a fresh green salad; and a local rose wine. We had such fun with the Gibbons. It was sad to say goodbye when they climbed into their taxi for the airport. Bon journee.
Tomorrow, Bill and I plan to visit the Chateau de Flaugergues here in Montpellier. There are forty hectores of vines classed as AOC Languedoc, Gres de Montpellier and Vin de pays d'Oc. Also, there's a large garden open to the public and a restaurant. The Comte and his family are in residence at the chateau, so it is only open by appointment.
We are looking forward to our next destination, Bern. We'll be leaving here Thursday afternoon on the train. We'll miss the lovely apartment and square.
