I met Oolie and Becky at Montparnasse in Paris
on Monday, 30 July
They had already been in Paris for a few days before I arrived,
and Oolie had been in Sweden for the week before that.
The three of us hopped on the train to Angouleme.
We were all about to POP with excitement....
...though I did manage to sleep most of the way there.
We rented a car at the train station and I was the
Designated Driver, due to the fact that I can drive
a standard shift car. It was really FUN.
We arrived in Verteillac around 7:30?
hmmm, I don't remember...
We drove down to Mike and Katie's and they came out
to give and receive big hugs!
Katie had left us a few groceries, since we arrived too late to shop.
It was nice to just heat up the water for the pasta, add yummy sauce
and tear up a little salad .... oh, and pour a glass of wine!
We toasted our successful arrival and the start of the
adventure to come.
I forgot that it stays light until almost 10 pm (sunset around 9:15)
I was pretty pooped out by the time we chose our rooms, took baths
and hopped into bed.
What a lovely place to be and with very special people.
...sweet, sweet dreams....
