beautiful summer




That was the name of this little restaurant we found in a charming village near the Tarn River in France. We had dinner outside and I took this picture from my seat, it was a wonderful summer night, the place was well visited and the narrow cobbled streets were very lively as all small stores and boutiques were open until late at night.

The kitchen was on the second floor so the waitresses had lots to do running up and down. Every so often the cook would look out the window, forgot to check if they also had tables there. A sweet memory is the dessert Mr Mar ordered. I ordered a second spoon...!

  2. Love the pretty decorations around the restaurant sign - it matches the delightful dessert you enjoyed. The open windows with the pretty flowers is quaint. Waitressing is a hard job.
