Spring countryside at Miradoux


We set off through fairly open countryside, mainly on roads, finding an open café in Bardigues that welcomed us for morning coffee despite our wet, muddy clothes, but thereafter discovering only closed shops. We met a couple from before in Sainte-Antoine who also complained that all the shops were closed, but we did get to look around the church with its impressive frescoes. The church in Flamarens with its adjacent castle was locked, as was the church in Miradoux, but we got the key from the Mairie and had a look around. Miradoux also had a small shop that was open, which was useful for topping up our supplies. The lady at the Gite "Chez Nat" in Castel-Arrouy was very sweet, as was her Yorkshire terrier, and we had a pleasant meal with her (we had the place to ourselves). We got to sample the traditional Gascon Apéritif, an Armagnac Liqueur We even got to visit the church and lock it up after ourselves, as this was one of our hostesses tasks, which she was glad to delegate to us!
