Wandering around in Loches is always a good thing, even if it was hot and humid. We stopped by the SuperU for a few things, then checked out the NOZ store. It's a remainder kinda place. Things set out hodge podge, with not much organization as to type of merchandise, so you have to walk through the entire store. We purchases a couple of bottles of spices, one called TexSpice, the other a red pepper, then mixed them together at home to hopefully come up with a nice hot blend.
|Bill made a yummy omelet with lardons and emmental, plus a melon and toast with either cassis conserve or local meil, honey.|
|After walking around the market in Loches, we came home to a selection of cheeses and a bottle of Vouvray sparkling wine we purchased on Monday.|
|On our walk to dinner, we came across this lovely lady, a Citreon Traction Avant.|
|We had the entire cafe to ourselves. The owner was fun to talk to.|
We walked to dinner at the local cafe by the river. The view out the back window was relaxing and there was a bit of a breeze blowing through to help cool us down. The French say we are having a heat wave, it's been all the way up to 83 degrees! We just call it summer.
|Don't know what was so funny, or maybe just the wonderfulness of the food caused the happy face!|
Dinner was very tasty. We were the only ones in the cafe, so the owner would come out and talk a bit between serving courses. All in all a delightful 62nd birthday!
