After being served Floc du Gascogne by my elderly hostess in a tiny town in the Gers I searched for it everywhere, finally finding it at Nicolas. Doh! A great aperitif!

It was a fantastic 26 hours with Kate. She's a gem!

The wind can be very unsettling I know.
We got lucky and had beautiful, sunny weather.

Wonderful stuff, isn't it! We live only a couple of hours from Gascony but never see it for sale down here.

what did you eat? can we trade life for just 26 hours ;-)

We had poule au pot for lunch on Sunday chez Kate and went to a little café in Nérac the following day for a delicious, simple lunch.

I'm afraid I don't want to trade! :)

I'd love to visit Kate. I imagine it was wonderful. Happy birthday.

Chez Loulou said...

If you ever have the chance - GO!
Kate is a wonderful woman and it is a beautiful place.
Thanks for the birthday wishes. :)

Kate's a great friend and I feel very fortunate to know her. And am happy that she lives so close!

My friend, blogger Farmgirl Susan, sent me a link to this post and it was like a breath of spring in the middle of a cold, snowy winter. Almost fifteen years ago my husband and I took my parents on Kate's barge for eight days. Heaven...
Even my Type A husband said it was his favorite vacation ever. Thanks for the lovely photos.

Thank you for your comment!
I'm happy that the photos brought a bit of spring during your long winter.
You should come back to France and stay in Kate's pigeonnier on the banks of the canal in Gascony. It is a heavenly, peaceful place!

Please thank Susan for sharing the link with you. Her blog is one of my favorites!
