Gite des Capucins
Up at 6 AM for cathedral Mass at 7 with 150 other pilgrims. Snow everywhere! Back to the gite for breakfast and then out again. A steep climb to a chapel atop the Roche Saint Michel, a Le Puy volcanic outcropping. Lunch at Comme a la Maison (57€). Wonderful! More exploring and then a nap. Difficult experience with cell phone but won in the end (Nicked it finally). Dinner again at Le Poivrier (46€)… Coquille St. Jacque with creamy polenta, very rich. How do the French eat like this every day and night? Cream, butter, cream, butter, scallops and beef… DAUNTING!
