A walk in the park

Wednesday 4th November 2009


Just a quick note – today we took a lunchtime walk to the local park and on the way passed not only a Canon camera store, but also the Russian (and Angolan) delegations.

I resisted going to look at all the nice new shiny camera equipment (including the new Canon 7D which retails at a mind-numbing $1,900 (USD) without a lens. Not that I need it 🙂 The park was nice and the rain held off for the entire day which was great. Stopped on the way at a bakery for coffee and something for dessert.

We had our second wedding anniversary dinner tonight (19 days early but who’s counting?) and went to this really nice local restaurant specializing in dishes from southern France. “Il Etait une Oie dans le Sud-Ouest” was the name of the reataurant (quite a mouthful) but the food was excellent; foie gras, cassoulet, cheese and coffee with mini-desserts. A great end to the day.


I’ll leave you with this, which was related to our dinner in some way or another.

Have a lovely evening (and Happy 5th November to all my British friends).
