Only brief notes just now, due to flaky internet access!
Very windy today, with occasional showers (remnants of one of the american hurricanes, apparently). Slept late, then out to do shopping. It was clearly not a day for going out on the tandem. Discovered french supermarkets close at noon on Sunday. Eventually went to Villedieu where bought baguettes and an apple tart.
Back to house where cooked dinner (butternut squash risotto) and awaited Gerry & co.
