In the morning we taped our serenade video, waved goodbye to our second new grandmother and hitchhiked at normal speed. Normally we just have to blink our eyes and we have a lift. This time it took a little longer but then a gentleman brought us to a gas station at the highway. We at an icecream in the sun before meeting our new friend Cedric the policeman who brought us a bit further. We danced in the sun at the border of the road until a hyper modern car brought us to a landley gasstation in the middle of nowhere. In this nowhere a big truck stopped. We got in!
The driver was a young guy: Sebastian; only 25 and already driving an enormous truck! He took us along fields of gold! Breathless we watched the grain fields shining in the sun.
At the next stop life brought us some wonderful people: Lucille, Thierry et Marie-Anique, driving a silver (aluminium) jeep (the first car we asked for a ride, because it looked so super cool!). After some serious doubting time about the illegal number of people in the car because Thierry had already lost a lot of his driving licence points, they said Yes! Hop on our safari!
We started to talk about our adventure trip and they asked us where we would sleep. We told them that we didn't know yet. Then they asked us: Would you like to sleep in a mill? What? A mill? Thierry told us that his mother lived in a watermill of the twelved century in the tres beau village Beaugency.
We arrived and it was like a fairytale. We couldn't believe our eyes. We were in heaven. Grandmere number 3(Thierry's mum) was 86 but still full of life and walked towards us with her green rain boots with pink butterflies. So modern! We made dinner together and toasted to a good trip and new friends. The wine and the dinner were heavenly. Close your eyes and imagine a grande, beautiful French diner, with strawberries with whipped cream, abricots, home made cake and marmelade for dessert. Not even to mention the little firework we brought. The enthusiastic family even took us for a walk around the evening city streets. Sweeter it couldn't get. Before bed they promise us a tour down the mill. We can't wait.....
