Fête de Fromage/ Cheese Festival




The town hall in Meulan


Once a year in the nearby town of Meulan there's a cheese festival that's held over the second weekend of October, and this year we went...in fact we braved the autumn weather and walked the 2km down the hill to visit it.



There were lots of people and the rain held off just until we decided to walk home





While the different bands played, some people danced.



Lots of great cheese and other yummy things to eat...shame for Alain and I, who are trying to get fit.



But Alexis and Marie Kate were able to enjoy probably the best waffles ever, with freshly melted chocolate sauce.





and some "fresh" milk.

Hubby Back and Montmartre






He's back and I'm so happy...he arrived Thursday morning and he took me to Paris.. We planned on eating in a Japanese restaurant, but it was closed (only open in the evenings) so
before walking up to visit the Sacre Coeur


We ate here. A new restaurant, that was really a great place to eat and not expensive to boot.




 This was the view of Paris when we left the Sacre Coeur, a bit cloudy, lots of tourists, but great view.
Oh yes, behind Alain (on the first photo), you can see tents that had been erected, they were for the la fêtes des vendanges, that was due to start the next day:(
