26th August Rain
A leisurely breakfast in the hotel.Just before we were ready to pack the car it started to rain "stair rods". Eventually the car was packed. The rain held off and we had a walk around the village and purchased some provisions for lunch.We set off taking the minor road out of the village we headed towards the small village of Le Pompidou and then on towards Florac and Mende. The rain had stopped by the time we had reached the plain so decided to make a small diversion to Mende arriving in the centre at around 12:40.
Walking round the centre the rain started but fortunately we had spotted the Mon P'tit Chou and for 12 euros has an excellent lunch. The restaurant had a general theme that every dish either contained cabbage or Chou pastry. An interesting concept that produced some very tasty dishes and the best meal we had had in France. Mon P'tit Chou
Driving toward Clermond Ferrand the rain started again so we were forced to have a Brexton drink in the car! The temperature also dropped to 11 degrees by the time we reached the hotel.
