We have a delightful lunch with M&J at their favorite Asian restaurant in Villenueve-sur-lot. This is a town they lived in before buying their current place in Fumel. Both Dick and I have Bananas Flambé for dessert, which was great. We remembered when Molly used to make it when we lived in Colgate. Afterwards they gave us a nice tour of the town.
We stopped in Peyragude (meaning wet-stone) above the village of Penne. Penne is on one of the routes to Santiago de Compostela. On the hill 200 meters above Penne is an 11th century church, Notre-Dame de Peyragude. Next to the chapel is the remains of a fortified castle built by Richard the Lion-Heart.
Returning home we stopped for fresh bread at a popular boulangerie, and bought some frozen food at a unique store that specializes in frozen veggies, meat, fish, desserts.
Tonight's movie is "Without a Clue" with Michael Caine and Ben Kingsley, 1988, in which Dr Watson is the brains behind Sherlock Homes. A clever turn of events!
