The first few days of January are always pleasantly busy at Au Passage du Gois with our French guests. This time they had quite a spectacle with the fallen over windmill (62m), 4 kilometers away from us. The last few weeks we were busy DIY-ing; tiling, hedge cutting, picking out new recipes for the table d’hote and we also tested several new walks. At the moment we only have 1 chicken, she is therefore somewhat lonely and now sleeps on our windowsill at night. No worries; in a few weeks a few new girlfriends will be arriving.
