What a great day for Fi to get here; the weather was lousy. Breezy and I had planned to do a bit of an exploratory walk on the way to pick up Fi from the train station but the cloud was down and it would not have taken long to get a thorough soaking. Instead we lit the stove and settled into a long internet and web session working on Ski Breezy.
We left the barn half an hour earlier that we needed to get a short walk in. We took a dead end road above Oust and set off into the woods with a view to finding some mushrooms. It quickly transpired that the path we had chosen did not in fact go anywhere so doubled back. Great to get a bit of fresh air but no mushrooms and we had discovered a dead end.
Picked up Fi, ate a sandwich each that we had made in the morning and trundled up to the barn. Had a quick chat with Anouk at the Auberge on the way who does a great impression of a donkey.
After a short tour we sat in the main barn and opened a bottle of fizz.
