This morning we headed off to the market in Vic-en-Bigorre, a rather larger town perhaps 30 minutes drive away. There is a sizeable undercover market with more stalls all around the edge. Outside the stalls are mostly clothes and jewellery. Inside it is more traditional: cheese; bread; vegetables; fruit; meat; small animals for the pot . We had a good wander about, bought some gorgeous goats cheese and then made our way to a nearby little hotel restaurant for coffees.
Today was just as hot as yesterday but much more overcast. Rain and a storm is on its way but not quite yet.
Got back to the house in time for a lovely lunch outside under the couvert. Chicken in a Moroccan style with an accompanying dish of a ragout of tomatoes and sweet red peppers, cooked right down to a rich sauce. I regret to say more afternoon sleeping then occurred. What are we like????? LOL.
Woke up about 530 ish and had aperos out on the poop deck and then a fabulous cheeseboard, including the two chevre cheeses we bought this morning. It was still boiling hot.
Sorry not to have any new pix. But I do have two video clips: Market video animals
and The Market Sorry, they are quite appalling quality! I am still getting used to using the video on my camera phone.
