Today we took a road trip. Our first port of call was Villesèquelande where stands the Ormeau de Sully - an Elm tree planted in the 16C - - the knights museum was closed !

Then headed into Truffle Country at Moussoulens, but no black diamonds found!

Montolieu was a village with 20 plus book shops, art galleries and potters! Lunch was enjoyed in the main square at Cassquets et Chapeau - caeser salad with anchovies served by an Irish lady whose French husband was the chef.

Then onto Saint-Martin-le-Veil stopping en route to view the Cistercian Abbey of Villelongue - the medieval gardens were worth the stop. Good day - saw lots you could so easily miss, thank you Google !!!
