Waking to Rodney the Rooster

Day 2, Clesse, Burgundy, France



Day 2 in Clesse we wake to the sound of Rodney the rooster (we have named him) and his buddy (unnamed) who sound totally out of tune it is hilarious dualling at 6:30 AM. Rob also seems to recall a goose who chimed in...too funny. We are well rested as the Chateau at night is so quiet (out in the country) and the air is fresh and cool...We are ready to go on day 2. We go for yummy breakfast then back onto the bikes heading this time to the Soane river... A lovely bike ride past beautiful fields of wild flowers and a slow moving river. We are out for the whole day and see only 2 other couples on the trail...We stop on a little stretch of secluded beach and rest before heading back to the Chateau. Once again to the pool to cool off and relax...like an old routine I wish would never end...
I am reading 2 books on this trip The Paris Wife and A Moveable Feast both set in Paris and really good reads....
Oh ya I almost forgot Rob ran over a snake on the bike ride. It came out of the cornfield and scared the bejesus out of me and Rob too I think?!?!...
Back at the pool we drink the rest of the Domaine de Gandines wine we had bought (a loveley chardonnay) We have dinner reservations at the Chateaux tonight, a restaurent Gastrnomique :)
Oh my goodness as if things couldn't get any better I ordered the Lobster and it was the best dish I have ever had! We sit outside for dinner on a terrace surrounded by stone walls everything was so romantic and perfect. After dinner we head off to bed only to be woken up by Rodney and friends in the morning of our departure. Rob says "I miss the Chateau already" this is a phrase I will here over and over on this trip whenever we leave one place for another. "I miss the Villa" (florence) as we leave for Venice, "I miss Venice" as we Leave for Paris etc.. and I am sure I may actually see tears accompanying "I miss Paris" on our last day...
