11am – Somehow I cannot seem to wake up much before noon in France. You would think the jetlag would work the other way, but no. I feel ambitious, so I make us a grand spread of eggs, potatoes, greens, and bread. Yum!
We decide that we really should try to find the route to Bedarieux today. It still takes us until 4pm to leave, and we still don’t find the route to Bedarieux, but we come much closer. We at least are climbing the right mountain this time.. (Traveler’s Note: It really isn’t that hard to find Bedarieux, we just weren’t trying very hard yet….)
Upon our return, we visit again the Villemagnaise, and try the remaining items on the 12 euro prix fixe menu that we have not yet tried. This time, we are not the only customers! An English-speaking couple follows us in. They hear us speaking and strike up a conversation. They’ve been on a hike in the area today with their big hairy dog (he’s quite friendly and well-behaved), and as they live about 20 miles away (bought a farm in the French countryside! Living the dream!), they were full of helpful info about things to do in the area which B and I will almost certainly not have the energy or inclination to really try. But we very much appreciated the sentiment of help. They were in a bit of a hurry to get home and feed the chickens, so we didn’t get a chance to ask for a photo, but we did get photos of the some more items from the 12 euro prix fixe menu – this time dessert du jour is chocolate lava cake! Utterly delicious.
We go home and watch more Sherlock, feeling that we have earned a rest for the evening with all our vigorous walking and eating.
