We took DS and DD on two boat trips, one along the Canal du Midi and one a little way out to sea in a glass bottomed boat to see the rock beds. We visited a fabulous cave with some amazing features, went back to a vinyard we'd stayed on before and of course purchased a few botttles of wine. We also toured the mountains behind us and found some great river beaches and pools. It's an area of France we love and will go back again.
Our last night there we went out for a meal in town, I had mussels which are my favourites and these had been cooked, garlic and herb crumb crust added, and then baked. They tasted wonderful but wow quite a lot of garlic.
I read two book whilst away - both by Joanne Harris, "Blackberry Wine" and "Chocolat" (my favourite). I am half way through her new book "Lollipop Shoes". I did do some stitching but nothing very much.
Before we went away I took part in a Redwork or Monochromatic Exchange and I stitched a needleroll for Sally. and I received a beautiful cushion from Laura.
It was a great exchange - thanks to everyone involved. I have some bits and bobs to finish off and another exchange piece to do for September. I'm not stitching anything big at the moment so it feels a bit weird. My stitching basket is still full of things to do though - hee hee.
