Another day at the 'office'

mme_lavache

st_gengouxWe spent the morning walking trails and looking at the medieval old city of St. Gengoux Le National, before making our way down backroads to Chapaize, where we bumped into Mme. Sylvie Auclair, who, with husband André, runs the local winery.

Mme Auclair invited us to taste, and we discovered she still had bottles of the 2005 harvest, thought by many to be one of Burgundy’s best years, ever. We made off with 6 bouteilles (at 4 Euros per) which probably won’t last long back a la maison at Ameugny.

Back chez nous, I took a spin around the ‘block’ to get my mileage up to the minimum 3 miles I’m committed to walk each day this trip, and bumped into a neighbor, seen above (who actually lives inside the city limits of Ameugny). Next project, add to the Google maps images of Ameugny…

    Well, that’s the place we would like to live too. Realy, realy. But its so difficult to find out if there is anything for sale in Ameugny. If you ever bump into a house for sale, let me know.
