SNOW IN THE LANGUEDOC






It is not often that you wake up to snow in the Languedoc, but this morning we did. It was not settling everywhere, but there was plenty in the wind. And on higher ground above Roquessels in Faugères, some has lingered in the vineyards. Here are a few photos.

And what do you do when the weather is cold and raw with a bitter wind blowing? The simple answer is: go out to lunch with some good friends. I can heartily recommend the fish soup at Le Phare on the sea front at Valras Plage. The sea looked more like the English Channel than the Mediterranean, but the soup was warming; the Picpoul de Pinet from the coop at Pinet flowed, and so did the conversation.
