Cribbage on honeymoon...

From Pink Green:

"What was I doing 10 years ago?

I was on my honeymoon. We took the ferry to Cherbourg and drove down through Brittany, stopping at Barfleur, Vannes, Nantes, and La Rochelle (with a few other places along the way), and then had the second week in a gorgeous stone cottage by the river near Il d'Oleron. We went to Cognac and had a tour of the distilleries (and came back with several bottles), visited Il d'Oleron, St Jean d'Angely (which is the weirdest town I have ever been to - they had piped music playing through tannoys in the streets, but not a soul in sight - creepy), and many other towns and villages. We sat out every night playing cribbage and Scrabble, whilst drinking wine and watching the swallows dart in and out of the barn next door. Bliss."
