The local restaurant has set out tables in the town square. The fact that they haven't put the umbrellas out yet a sign that no one is quite sure whether or not another bout of bad weather is on the way. The old kitchenware store has got a new lease of life as a shop selling dressing gowns. The window display says the new owners haven't quite got their marketing skills down pat.
In the evening a demonstration outside the Prefecture in the local market town against breeding Beagles for vivisection. The silent demonstrators ? A dozen Brits, eight Dutch and four Americans.
Later today the long drive up to the breeders to make the final arrangements to pick up Bob and Sophie when we get back from California.
