We spent the morning walking through some of the streets of Cotignac. This ancient town that I am living in dates back to the 12th century. The streets are narrow and lined with 3 and 4 story residences with wooden shudders, as you would expect. Many are decorated with colorful window boxes and painted doors. Some even have the ubiquitous cat sitting on a window ledge. Of course, our outings often revolve around food, so on our return to the car, we stopped for lunch on the cours which, as usual, includes a half carafe of rose.
