We have had a great few days catching up with our Canadian friends Clive and Irene who have retired and moved to the beautiful French countryside!   In Vouvray we have stayed in an amazing house built back into the cliff with an awesome cave dining room and lovely garden ...

Breakfasts have been incredible .... All beautifully prepared by our host Corinne, with gorgeous local produce ....

A huge assortment of bottled jams and spreads, stewed and fresh fruits, creme caramels (yes ... For breakfast!) plum tarts, clafoutis with fruit, brioche and baguettes!!!! 

The celebration tree is up all year around .. To celebrate Christmas, Easter, 4th July, etc etc with decorations appropriate for the occasion ...

We ambled through the countryside yesterday in Clive and Irene's car so managed to get off the beaten track and explore some tiny towns and enjoy a magnificent lunch ...

Heading to Paris today to join the party crew to celebrate Cathys 60th birthday on Wednesday !!
