I saw Sunday

Our friend who had surgery two weeks ago for a trapped sciatic nerve is in the Centre de Thalassotherapie de Granville for Re-education (Seawater therapy and physio etc), They have treatments morning and afternoon all week, but Sundays they can have visitors, so we took her out to lunch today at one of our favourite restaurants nearby.

Restaurant du Port, Granville
la porte du Retaurant du Port de Granville

and le port du Restaurant du Port- la mer n’était pas là.  (The tide was out)

 the remains of my lunch
  So French:  the salt’s in the pepper pot and the pepper’s in the salt!
 a water tower on the way home, taken from the moving car, so don’t blame me if it’s wonky!

A very happy time was had by all and we managed to haul our friend out of the dumps and make her laugh. 

A problem for us:  we are invited out to dinner tonight, 50 km further up the coast, where a lovely franco/german family are staying with some other friends.  I’m looking forward to seeing them again, and their two little girls, but I’m not looking forward to eating another meal.  I’m taking the dessert: a chocolate cake I made this morning.

    My favourite restaurant too! And I am lucky – I get to eat there when I like.

    {Sigh} I wish I could travel with you. You wring the juice from every day—and probably at a pace I could maintain.

    Looks like you had a wonderful day, and I like that watertower. We had one near us with whales on it. I’d stick with the dessert only.

    You really are a neat eater, Viv! 🙂 I eat moules marinières and end up with a higgledy piggeldy mountain of shells! Normally balance precariously in too small a bowl.

    Is it a French thing putting the pepper in the one with one hole? I’ve been very confused about it recently and thought it was just me. I don’t have a cruet set like that so I don’t know but instinctively I think salt is in the one holed container and twice now (without thinking) I’ve covered my plate with pepper… sigh

    It’s hard to push down two entertaining meals in one day but it can be done:-) Lettuce leaves for the rest of the week?

    Oooh, I love that painted water tower! I hope you find enough room for more food tonight. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing these with I Saw Sunday, it is always good to have you on board. x

      M-C had said we’d be dining “leger” (lightly.) You could have fooled me – a huge avocado salad followed by roast pork, then my chocolate cake and her own lemon drizzle cake. We managed, but I dread the sight of the scales today!

        I’m glad you managed to tuck it away somewhere! lol

        By the way, I have been having some trouble with my comments on blogger and I notice that I didn’t have one from you this week on my I Saw Sunday? Now it is fine if you didn’t visit, but I suspect that you may have done? and maybe the comment got gobbled up somewhere in cyberspace? Thought I would ask. 🙂


  7. Quite a shell midden there, you are no doubt descended from successful hunter-gatherers.

    So you can have too much of a good thing?

    Love the painted water tower – what a great idea.
