Spending a leisurely day strolling through Isle Sur La Sorgue is always a pleasure. Although this trip we forgot that the primary antiquing days are Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Completely different than a normal touristy French town which generally prefers the Friday-Saturday-Sunday-Closed on Monday schedule. Mike supposes that this is to enable the owners to be profitably employed elsewhere in order to support their hobby businesses.
At our favorite lunch spot I enjoyed a menu of simply perfect lentil soup followed by a plate of lotte served with a beautiful ciboulette sauce. Mike chose the saucisson lyonnaise wrapped in a bit of pastry crust accompanied by a salad and followed by an ambitiously sized faux filet and a plate of the best home style frites. Mike had to fight hard to keep all of the fingers at the table from stealing all his fries!
