This morning I shot out of bed like grease lightening and was out the door before breakfast. (Ed: Not something I’ve ever seen before!) For the serious geocacher a “first to find” (FTF) is a major deal and the town of Montignac Le Coq had such a cache. We soon had the FTF honours and went home for breakfast after viewing the many condensation trails that occur in the sky everyday even though we don’t see or hear any planes. Actually I just wanted to show you the proof that the sky is blue and the sun does shine in Aubeterre.
Having logged our FTF we discovered that there were 3 more not-yet-found caches so back out we went, but this time we also went to the local St Jean subterranean church in Aubeterre. It is estimated the church took 10 years to carve out of solid rock and principally held graves of important people as well as having a normal church function.
A taste of France comes from our at home lunch of baguette, fromage and pate, which today is poor Peter rabbit in a jar. Today’s French word is Lapin – a cute rabbit turned into good terrine.
After lunch, just to see what the locals do when the sun is out we went to the local river beach and saw the un-rowable weir, went to the garden centre (impressive variety) and of course went geocaching.
A couple of people who decided to try living in France for three months, to absorb some of the culture and to try a diet of Baguette, cheese and wine.
