Finally did yoga again, then after lunch went out with Colin to the bar. The local cycling club was leaving on a ride from the square across the road and Colin was there to see them off.
Later in the afternoon we went for a drive to Fontenille to see some friends of Colin’s, Tony and Joyce, who also happen to be Neil’s ex-in-laws. Tony had framed a couple of posters for Colin, and has a wonderful workshop where he does paintings and other artwork.
Their house and yard have been completely re-done (by Neil) and it’s a very beautiful and inviting place. I especially liked the corner water feature and hanging flower baskets. We ended up visiting for a couple of hours – they seem like very nice folks.
Thursday I actually went for a bike ride! It was really nice to be out again, and I covered about 18 km – not much, but fresh air and exercise just the same.
I rode as far as the village of Mouton, and then down a couple of side roads to see where they went.
Stopped at the bar for a quick glass of wine, then dropped my camera back at the house and rode to the store to get fixings for BBQ burgers for dinner.
A little later Colin and I went down to the bar – the very nice lady that owns it always gives me the kissy kissy cheeks now, and Mo loves her because she always gets treats from her.
There’s a yard on the walk home that has a curious collection of bird ornaments that are very cute.
Burgers were delicious – Neil manned the BBQ while I did the fried onions and mushrooms.
