Still in catch up mode. Posting March 13 on March 14.

Today Sunday March 13 is the first day Sandy walked early in the morning to buy fresh bread for breakfast.  She went to our second most favorite bakery/boulangerie La Fournee Malouine.  It had been closed until last Thursday while they were on vacation.

Since it was cold, windy, and/or rainy the last few days, we had been eating “leftover bread” from the previous evening meal for breakfast. We had also been eating food left here from 2014. So leftover bread didn’t taste as bad as stale Honey Nut Cheerios from 2014.  Phil bought bread for breakfast yesterday morning, a rare occurrence.

We walked on the “digue,” which is a dike like structure which runs between the beach and street. Even though the sun was shining brightly it was cold.  The wind was blowing at 24 kph. We walked around the castle where the walkway was closed during high tide and through the city back to our apartment.

We cooked pork chops (from our local butcher) for lunch with new potatoes and fresh zucchini.  Our son Michael wanted to “FaceTime” at 10:30 am his time.  Sandy listed his call on our calendar but forgot that he had changed to Daylight Saving Time. For the next couple of weeks he is only 6 hours different, not 7. France implements daylight savings time on Easter day this year. So his call came through at 16:30, not 17:30.  It was good to see his face and hear his voice.  We miss him!
