Log on a blog.

Last night's dinner:

In a small bistro in St Pierre, L'ile D'Oleron.




L'andouillette: ostensibly, a large pork sausage. On the inside seems to be every part of a pig's innards. Excellent.

The search for cafe au lait:

You never know what you are going to get when you order cafe au lait. This is true in the UK as well as in France.

So, on Thursday in Bordeaux I was given a cup of espresso and an accompanying tiny jug of hot milk.

Last night in St Pierre it was a cup of  espresso with cream already added and stirred in.

Quirky pictures of France:

This morning went to an outdoor bric-a-brac sale in Dolus - small town on the island - hoping to find some railway paraphernalia.

Didn't, but there was some fantastic old garden furniture.




And the usual selection of firearms.
