Lewis's chipless American credit card wouldn't work in the fuel pump, and there was no attendant on duty, so I used my French bank card (avec puce) and he reimbursed me with cash. Evelyn and I went into the supermarket to pick up a couple of things for the next morning's breakfast.

As we drove on toward Mortagne, the sun came back out and an amazing rainbow formed out in front of us. We were on a section of road that was more or less an autoroute, so we couldn't easily stop the car. I just took some pictures through the windshield.
When we did turn off the autoroute, we had nice views of the town of Mortagne-au-Perche as we drove in from the north. Mortagne's population is only 5,000 but the town feels larger than that. It bustles with activity, at least during the day. In the evening, the streets are quieter.
After walking around the historic district behind the cathedral for an hour or so, taking pictures, we had dinner at a crêperie near the main marketplace. Our vacation was ending, but we had had some very nice days. I have a lot more pictures to post over coming days.
