Quiet returns.

Quite the list of do's and dont's  painted on the doorway of a shop in town.

Having collected the dry cleaning Sophie and her companion head off in the car for a coffee and a croissant. We sit outside. The waitress says ' Are you sure ?' All the tourists have gone and the place is sinking back into the quiet of the off season. Sophie enjoys the croissant but her companion is less sure.  It comes from the Scots branch of the croissant family and can best be described as a distant relation.

Sophie looks like she's reacting to the list of do's and don'ts - I don't suppose they said anything about artfully unkempt divas?

Angus's failing search for a high-scoring croissant in the Kingdom of Fife makes one wonder if he is wise to continue the same breakfast strategy, or if a humiliating u-turn in favour of tattie scone or buttery is in order. Perhaps Mr Kwarteng could advise...

I applaud the shop for maintaining hygiene standards. I applaud Angus for striving to maintain French standards. YAM xx

I, too, admire Angus for striving to maintain French standards in his search for the ever-elusive (almost) perfect croissant. Somehow, I doubted he'd find it in that particular café - those chairs look most uncomfortable, and lacking sunshine, it looks so uninviting.

It takes time to adjust to the local cuisine, in months it will be haggis for breakfast, and Sophie will still be happy.

Must be a distant red haired cousin baking croissants here in Oklahoma City

Sophie does indeed look VERY happy.
