St Leon sur Vezere

After breakfast we took off to Saint Leon sur Vezere. The plan was to buy our lunch there at Dejeuner sur l’herbe and then a relaxing picnic by the water. The small picnic place was closed, and so we just chose among touristy looking restaurants in the village center. Auberge du pont had a terrace beautifully shaded by trees and other vegetation. So we sat there and chose from the menu. I went with roast lamb and my husband with a lamb gigot. My lamb came accompanied by gratin dauphinois, zucchinis, roast tomato and half of a renverse of zucchini. The food was good, the lamb very tender. My pieces had a lot of grease on them that I did cut out, but the meat was tender. Renverse of zucchini didn't have much taste, and I had only tried potatoes because I don't like béchamel sauce. Despite this I had more than enough food with the meat and all vegetables. The lunch was very pleasant there with a glass of wine and a beer.

After lunch, we decided to go to the panoramic point above St Leon. I had previously received directions from the lady at the tourist office who drew a map for us. The directions were simple to follow and the views were beautiful. We could lie there on the picnic tablecloth I brought with us laid on the grass. We relaxed there for some time before driving to our camping in Carsac-Aillac.
