The days are so busy and the time is so short. Today, I'm cooking (an American specialty, Brunswick Stew), filing my tax return (la déclaration d'impôts) for which the deadline is Friday, and trying to keep up with this blog.
Walt watching a train from Tours that's getting ready to pull out of the station
Today I planned to post a couple of photos of the main courses we had at lunch on Saturday in the restaurant in Bracieux, but I just realized that have only one decent shot. When CHM is up and moving in a few minutes, I'll see if he has any photos I might use and post them tomorrow.
The Blois train station's restaurant, not crowded at noon on a Saturday
Meanwhile, here are a few shots I took in the train station in Blois that same day.
An informational sign in the station
By the way, I haven't mentioned the nice party we were invited to Monday afternoon over in the neighboring village of Pouillé. Ladybird / Martine, visiting from Belgium, and her friends J-L and B who have a house here, were the hosts. There were 15 of us, mostly local bloggers, and we enjoyed conversation and a great lunch al fresco in their garden for the whole afternoon.
Waiting for the crowd to arrive at lunchtime on a Saturday
It was an international crowd, with attendees from Belgium, Australia, Wales, England, Scotland, and the U.S. We got sunburned — can you believe that?
