This morning we woke up at 10am. I don’t remember the last time (if ever) I have slept until 10am.  That’s crazy!  I guess we were tired from all the traveling and things over the last couple of days.

It wasn’t great weather out this morning, but it wasn’t raining.  So, we decided to take our umbrellas and walk down the hill into Ange to go visit the tiny town and the bakery.  It is cute and the bakery has some of the best pastries I have ever tasted!  We bought a lemon tart and a religeuse.  We walked over to the church gardens and ate our treats there – and it was amazing.  Yeah!

 

We decided we would continue walking all the way to the closest grocery store – which ended up being over 5km away.  I know that we are tough Canadians, but when I ask if a place is close, I definitely do not think that most people would think that 10km round trip would be close for groceries. 

Anyway, by the time we got to the Carrefour, it was absolutely pouring rain.  Not just a drizzle, but an absolute downpour.  We decided we would basically buy everything we would need for the rest of the week and take a cab back to our place.  It was an excellent decision, because potatoes, and the cheese needed for tartiflette were on sale, so those are heavy things.  And now I have cheese to bring home to freeze for later on this winter!  It was a fun grocery expedition and we were almost dry by the time we went to leave. Almost.

We went for a walk in the forest outside of the house and took some pictures during a raining break.  We found tonnes of chestnuts and decided we should shell and cook some of them.  They are okay.  Not as amazing as the walnuts I found this morning on our walk.  So very cool that there are nuts just growing everywhere here.
This is our “castle” where we stayed for a week!

We made an amazing tartiflette for dinner – and almost made ourselves sick.  It is definitely not a “light” dish at all.  We will have to do some serious exercise tomorrow to make up for all of our potatoes and cheese meals!
