A walk in the woods

Maddie and her moo friends

The immediate area surrounding Labaroche has easy trails connecting neighboring villages within the forest, and the last few days allowed for 1/2 day excursions in the woods. One in particular was suggested by the b&b owner herself. (The view is beautiful and at the end there is a wonderful place where you can stop for lunch. The fromage blanc with kirsch – TRES BON!) Who were we to refuse such a recommendation for a place to eat? She was right, of course. The best part about the short trek (3 hours dilly-dallying roundtrip) was the meal itself – a type of savory meat pie called tourte, a fluffy omelette with bacon, and that fresh fromage blanc which was lightly sweetened with white sugar and a splash of cherry brandy. Oui, tres, tres bon, and this wraps up our french summer vacation for 2006.
