We had our first company and, wouldn’t you know it, a cold front arrived with him. It’s one of those cold fronts from Siberia and there is also wind so it is miserable out there. We had hoped that he would get to see kite surfers and other activity on the beach but all we have seen are some bundled up people walking their dogs. We did get out for a quick trip to the market and then went to a town called Fouras, a short way away, with a view of Ile de Aix and Fort Boyard and just about froze to death.
The first strawberries which look fabulous, don’t they? Maurice, as always, says they won’t have any taste being from green houses in Spain. We always wait for the French strawberries from the fields of France.
