We were up sharp at 8 today. Looking outside, suggests it’s going to be a hot day – excellent!
We’re off to ‘Montauban’ today. It’s a large town, around 50km south-east of base.
We got there around 10.15, had a look round the Cathedral and then some shops.
Then time for a coffee in the Square soaking up the (very) warm sunshine!
We then jumped in the car and headed towards Moissac. The original plan was to look at the world-famous Cloisters, but by the time we got there, they had closed for lunch. So, this was a perfect opportunity to find somewhere for lunch. Most places were closed (typically French) and the Restaurants near the cloisters seemed to have quite a limited menu.
We headed further into the town (what a pretty place!, very clean and very colourful) and found ‘Au Bureau’ – a pizza/bar just off the town square. Ann had pizza and I had a burger with chips (very French!). Ann had wine and I drank Guinness (but it tasted very different). We then shared a dessert with coffee – perfect!
After lunch, we looked round the Cloisters. They were fantastically well-preserved for their age – 12th century.
Then, we drove back to base to spend an hour around the pool.
…and finally, we started to pack as we’re leaving after breakfast tomorrow.
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
