Well, yes, thank you, Richard.
Incredibly, it bucketed down but only for about 20 minutes. We started off after it stopped and there were only some drizzles. Had l'entrée at one farm and mains at the chateau.
Hélas, it wasn't outdoors by candlelight on account of worries about the weather. But it was OK because, instead of eating outdoors where the serfs would have eaten, we were admitted into the dining room.
Sat on uphostered chairs that were certainly Louis-some-number-or-other in a room full of .....er....meubles. Don't quite know how to describe the mixture of bonnetière, desserte, armoire etc, you get the idea.
The food was excellent but unfortunately I have some medical complications and couldn't drink any of the wines.
After I got home about midnight, the heavens opened again and there was thunder, lightning, gales, rain all through the night; couldn't get to sleep until the early hours of the morning.
Then Sunday night, same combination of thunder etc and today again it was grey and raining all day until towards evening when the sun came out and it was so hot and humid that I might have been in Singapore waiting to see if Trump and Kim would fall in love with each other and declare their bromance to the world.
