Last day in Castelnau de Montmiral

Our lazy Sunday started at 6am with the Bric a Brac market  immediately below the house.  It was only possible to ‘look’ – we cannot carry anything else in our packs! No creme brulee dishes at this market but plenty of relics from the 1st and 2nd world wars including gas masks and swords.

Some of our friends enjoy the sporting life! We enjoy looking!

We were invited to join the local village at their annual Chasse Dinner. This is a traditional hunt dinner of meat dishes consisting of wild boar and venison that have been shot by the locals then cooked for this large communal feast for over 100 people. We were in a party of 17 mostly English expatriots that have made France their home – friends of Di’s and Dave’s through an organisation called FIFI – Friends in France International.  The weather was perfect- food was copious and wine flowed freely. The afternoon ended with dancing to well known French songs accompanied by piano accordian and mouth organ players. It was a wonderful finale to our time here!

These memories of the Chasse Dinner we’ll hold dear long after this trip is over.
