We stayed outside in the bright sunshine for coffee and cake, sitting in front of the barn to shelter us from the wind. Paul grabbed his gardening baseball cap from the barn to protect his head from the sun. We sipped our coffee and then I glanced at Paul, shrieked and then dissolved into giggles. The most enormous snail was fixed to the side of Paul’s hat. It just looked totally ridiculous.

More hunters about today, standing at the edge of the woods, waiting for some poor animal to come running out from the undergrowth. Philippe told Paul that a sanglier (wild boar) had been spotted in the woods. He was out with his dogs and his gun although he isn’t a member of the chasse. Eventually they drove off so hopefully that was one that got away.
