Visitors, Visitors, Visitors

On July 12th, we took our guests to the BIG market held every Saturday in Sarlat. We bought fresh vegetables and spent the rest of the day cooking a wonderful dinner. It was a scene from the Big Chill.

On July 13th, we drove our guests to St. Emilion to see the wine country. We arrived in time to take a tour of the village before a thunderstorm cut the tour short. We did do some wine tastings in shops and at a winery. The La Rose Cotes Roi was our favorite winery tour because they told us things about wine making we did not know, says Norm. The girls thought is was the BEST because the owner of the winery was soooo handsomely FRENCH!!…

Pretty countryside as we head to St. Emilion!

They would have stayed there all day!  It was a great day in spite of the rain. In the evening we returned from St. Emilion and had dinner at La Chevrefeuille, where we had taken our cooking classes with Ian and Sara.

Of course, we had a LOVELY dinner there and again, met new people!! We met a gal named Joyce, who was traveling alone……. with her three children!!! She is from Vancouver, flew to Ireland, met up with some friends, and now is hanging in the south of France for awhile! We couldn’t belive she would undertake such a hard task of traveling with three little ones, but she is doing it just fine! And she is also blogging!
