On July 14th, we played at the pool and in the evening we went to see the fireworks in Montignac because it was Bastille Day in France. The impressions of the celebration were that they did not have a lot of “junk” to sell the children, there were no fireworks for sale and no one says “ooooh and awe” after the fireworks go off. But, they do all applaud at the end of each set of fireworks. For dinner, Rita cooked foie gras for dinner. It was the first time we had cooked foie gras. It is not too hard, just sauté it in a pan. But, it was really tasty.
On July 15th, we played at the pool and visited La Source Restaurant in Tursac for dinner. We considered this our farewell dinner since Mary was leaving the next day before dinnertime! Angela and I had plenty of time to discuss her engagement, wedding plans and other things going on in her life.
