Leaving the Compound

I am now in the midst of weekend commuting.

Three nights in France and four in London. It’s a routine which requires organisation but otherwise the change of scenery is needed and vey much enjoyed.

Last weekend we decided to actually leave the house and garden and ventured out for dinner at a local brasserie in Le Rouret, the Bistro du Clos. We strolled down from the house with the little dog in tow and a very relaxed evening was had by all.

I hadn’t been there before and was pleasantly surprised. Excellent people watching as the people of Le Rouret seem to be discreetly wealthy and rather smart. Certainly more than the hoi palloi of Valbonne!

The food was excellent, very seasonal and delicious. The prices were reasonable and as we strolled home, past a pond of croaking frogs destined for someone’s plate, it was a very pleasant evening indeed.

I have a feeling we’ll be heading back again soon.
