New Castle Adventure

Saturday, May 5th, 2018

A weekend with my delightful daughter in the charming town of New Castle, Delaware, which neither of us had before visited, and in which we landed by sheer chance during the May Flower Market (proceeds benefit the town’s public parks and gardens).

A Sunday expedition to neighboring villages. You can tell it’s the turning of the season when there is sun, rain, and snow all on the same day.

Giving Thanks at La Savie

11.27Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a big event in the United States, but in the rural Dordogne it’s an off-season quiet Thursday night. The three of us were the only patrons on a Thursday evening, off-season, at La Savie. It’s run by a young couple who gave up their city lives to renovate an old farm and give it new life housing both a growing family and a lovely restaurant with a fresh bright imaginative décor and menu. We celebrated quietly and far from home, but with much gratitude for our present temporary one.
