On our 850 mile trip home from Barcelona to Calais, we took a little 40 mile detour to have lunch at L'Auberge de Clairac, only to find a notice on the gate saying, ' Ce mardi après-midi à L' Auberge sera exceptionnellement fermé. Nous vous remercions de votre compréhension'. Which roughly translates to 'This Tuesday afternoon the restaurant will be closed. Thank you for your understanding'. I had checked the website and it said, 'Open All Day'.
Six years earlier, we had been their very first customers the day they opened the restaurant and we were looking forward to a romantic meal in the French countryside at the end of our holiday. The owner came out to speak to us but did not even offer us a snack or a glass of wine!
Don't you just love it when a plan comes together.
