It was an earl morning with my phone alarm going off at 8am. Richard and Sue were keen to show me all the little medieval towns around their village, so I had a few busy yet relaxed days ahead of me. After croissants and coffee for breakfast we were on our way, driving past old villages and house and of course - the vineyards.
Beaune is a pretty little village with a freindly vibe to it. There weren't many tourists which was nice after the masses in Paris. We visited the old Hospice, a very old building which only stopped operating as a hospice in 1970s. It even has the traditional Burgundian tiled and glazed roof, which shimmers in the sunlight. We stopped for lunch, I wasn't too hungry and simply had a fromage omlette.
That night we had a small birthday BBQ (Yes another bbq!!) for Sue and her friends Leslie and Chris, who were accompanies but their husbands Tony and Ardry. It was a great BBq with lots of food, cake, cheese, grapes and wine! Of course an endless supply of wine it seemed. I think it's the most I've eaten and really enjoyed in a long time! It was another enjoyable evening, the conversation some how always returning to Chris's worm farm!
