We all wake up late and don’t do much in the morning. Jannig has to leave, since Lison has to take sailing courses later in the day. Briac stays with us. Jeremie goes to St Brieuc to welcome Boris who came to pay us a visit. That’s his first time in Brittany (he comes from Avignon, Southern France). With so many French around, I guess there aren’t much choice but doing the national sport: aperitif and good food. The weather is still excellent, so barbecue is on offer. Everyone gets busy preparing lunch. We enjoy it all under the tree. Boris tries to get accustomed to the weather. For us, it’s hot. For him, used to Southern France’s heat, it’s almost cold here. Even under the sun!

Jeremie_in_actionWe’ve drunk significantly and need to exercise a bit. Jeremie suggests to his friends to help him out in the garden. At 7p.m. the three boys who for hours were clearing bushes and cutting the grass, stop and enjoy the last bits of sun for an aperitif outside. Team work again for dinner: a stunning salmon cooked “en papillote.”  Red wine and white wine abound. We spend the rest of the evening by the fire, chattering about everything, drinking pear eau de vie and whisky. At 1 a.m., someone proposes to play Trivial Pursuit. We team up: Briac with me and Jeremie and Boris. Jeremie and Boris win the game, relatively easily. Boys get drunk progressively and Boris suggests another game. Briac agrees but only if this doesn’t last more than 20 mns. Forgot to say it’s 2:30 a.m. We play again and we got crushed. Jeremie and Boris – with a mix of luck and excellent responses – just got everything right. They have answered all questions in just 20 mns. The fastest game ever!
