Une belle soirée au Restaurant L’Insolite à St.Martin de Ré en compagnie de Sebastien Boutet, Alizée Massé et Monsieur Daniel-Etienne Defaix, dont nous avons fort apprécié les vins excellents.
As I set up this site, it occurs to me that a number of posts are going to appear somewhat out of chronological sequence, but as long as they fulfil an evocative function, I’m not too concerned. I think I’ll persevere with it, and I may even catch up with myself.

My flight was delayed for only an hour by a spectacular storm over Southampton. What followed in its wake was no less imposing.
