After work focused really on some conversations about our last Saturday night coming ... we need a big BBQ blow out 😝 Discussions so far seem to indicate we are going to try to an Asador Whole lamb (Crucifix lamb) ... see photo ...


On the way back to the cottages ... I stopped by the Palais Des Poulet ... and I had another run in with the aggressive cockerel ... I have a video ... see if you laugh as much as a certain little Greek did .... 

After that there was a bit of wine reading ... and some prep for tomorrow ... need to sleep tonight 😴😴😴😴
