Saturday morning we headed off to introduce Françoise to Loulè and the wonderful indoor outdoor market. The traffic was a little heavier than usual, related to the Christmas season I think, and all the people out organizing last minute shopping. In that regard, it seem to be somewhat similar to North America.
When we arrived in Loulè we discovered that the main street was closed to traffic and there was a huge outdoor craft sale loaded with local vendors selling every imaginable thing you could think up. What a delight and what fun we had stopping and chatting with people, testing some of the products, making a few small purchases and simply enjoying the festive air of the whole place. We had a great day and I think it’s best to simply let the photos do the talking.
We walked our feet off and enjoyed every moment of it……………the market starts to wrap up around 12h30 and by then we were wanting lunch and as luck would have it, were very close to a tiny place that Marc and I had eaten last year. We had the place to ourselves with a lovely fire burning in the grate, just for us.
Françoise had told them she wanted salad and only 4 french fries!!!! The server put five on the plate and smiled a big toothless grin when she presented them. A few minutes later she brought an entire plate and put them in front of Françoise and smiled again. Fun had by all.
