Day 2: Holiday in France

We both slept well judging by the fact we didn't wake-up until 8am.

The weather forecast is for a hot day, so we plan to take the train to Toulouse after breakfast.

Well, after taking a drive to the nearest Stations, we discovered that the Sunday service was pretty infrequent, so we decided to drive to 'Agen' instead. After parking in the town, we looked round the town museum (mostly Roman stuff and paintings) and after a coffee we jumped in the car and headed for 'Lauzerte' - about a 45 minute drive away.

Wow! What a lovely town. Beautiful views (as it was so high up). We had some snacks and another coffee at around 2.30.

We then headed back via a shortcut and got in by 4pm.

Feet up and time to catch up with our reading and podcasts as it was looking a bit grey outside.

We both had a short nap and then got ready for Dinner. We had a drink on the terrace - it a clear blue sky, even at 7.15 - and then went to the restaurant. We were first in, but not long after, the place was almost at capacity with three other couples - one French and two British, so it's certainly an intimate environment!

A great meal (again!) - finished off with coffees...and then off outside to try and track down the elusive mobile-signal! And then, off to bed.

The town of Montauban tomorrow!
