First up….an open-air Marché de Poterie in Sallèles-d’Aude….a market of handmade pottery items. Booths were still being set-up when we arrived, but fortunately a number of artisans had arrived early so we had more than enough to browse through. The craftsmanship and prices were excellent and it was hard to pass these treasures by without buying one, but it will be difficult enough to ship what we have back home….this isn’t the time to pick up souvenirs….darn!
After this, it was time for some serious shopping….on to the Géant hypermarket in Narbonne where we found something we knew we would need for the boat but didn’t know if we’d find….a fish net large enough to scoop Felix out of the canal. He’s not the most graceful feline….and we suspect that this new acquisition will be put to good use.
After we returned home, an afternoon breeze came up chasing the heat away so we sat outside for hours and hours….talking about nothing in particular, eating stinky (and I use this word very reverently) French cheese and drinking chilled rosé….ahhhh, life is good.
