Dinner at Blain 16thOct



Such a pretty place. Such a plain name.



We got the good oil suggestion to camp on the waterfront.



Camped beside a canal. Rustic footbridge bridge across the canal.



On the other side of this little waterway is Le Chateau de la Groulais – A castle built from between the 11th and 14th Centuries. Not so new.



Its a pretty enough set of buildings and some poor Frenchman now tries to eke out a living by running a flash noshery from the site, feeding well fed food loving French.

Speaking of eating- what did we have for dinner last night as we camped there?



Well you get bit tired of steak, fish, pork, and chicken. So it was time to try cheval. Unusual to us but commonly available in butcheries and supermarkets here. And what do you have with cheval? Well here it is -donner a puree de pommes de terre avec carottes et harricotes et broccoli du haut jus de viande cheval champignon.



After that I feel like a canter in the paddock and a frolic in the autumn mist.
