Yesterday we bid adieu to Pat and Stanton, we had had such a good time with them we were sad to be moving on but at the same time looking forward to seeing Caren and Mike’s house and garden and for them to show us their part of France.
But before we leave Fitou let me tell you what we did there. Michael and I did have a wonderful dinner in Collioures, a degustation menu with a choice of each course from the menu and matching wines. It was especially good value since the sommelier left the beautiful red which accompanied the meat and cheese courses on the table and since he was pre occupied with the beautiful young woman on the table behind us, we drank it!
In the morning I walked up to the moulin, as painted by Matisse, and wandered through the town. This is the early morning light and the typical fishing boats of the area. We later walked to the Art Gallery which was disappointing since there it was one artist and their interpretation of Matisse, sketches and pieces of wood with wire!
