When they finished their work, the ladies took a dip in the pool, read, and listened to their music.
After lunch, we had an excursion to the local (5 minutes away) chocolate "factory". The Cesbron brothers, who own the chocolate "factory", made a presentation and showed a film about the origins of chocolate. We were able to sample everything, as the brothers demonstrated how they make the candy and decorate the chocolate. Just after we made our purchases and returned "home", there was a lovely afternoon storm that was rather noisy and cooled off the evening.
After dinner, the girls did make up and hair, read, listened to music, talked, and "played" before the midnight curfew. . . .
We have been so lucky that the weather has been so perfect. This is not always the case in the this part of la belle France. We have been eating typical French dishes. Every now and then, there is something that we don't care for, but the girls have been courageous in trying things out.
A bientot! JM
