Language skills needed.
An admonitory look from Sophie this morning. She wonders why Angus takes so long to get ready.
The donkeys are at the bottom of their field and ignore us. The same can't be said for the horses.
They are particularly friendly this morning . Sophie isn't overly happy to be at the receiving end of their attention. Horses can seem so big when close up. Much better to maintain some distance.
Off to the Sunday morning market to buy some flowers ...
... and some bread.
An interesting sign of the times. We see three people wearing face masks. The French radio coverage of the Corona virus outbreak has induced a state of anxiety amongst some of the locals. A case in Bordeaux has been reported. All three mask wearers have covered their mouths but not their noses. Angus wonders whether he should point out the illogicality of this but decides his French isn't up to the finer points of epidemiological transmission mechanisms. Angus and Sophie shall closely monitor how many locals are wearing face masks.
