National Go For A Walk Day

18th June
It’s National Go For a Walk Day so The Director and I join an organised walk in a nearby commune. We meet the military haircut neighbour I’d been introduced to yesterday and his perfectly manicured wife, M and Mme. Bontette. are a very well-groomed couple. At the end of the walk we are invited to join the Maire of the commune for a drink. It is a press photocall. He is expecting to win an election and wants to be photographed for the papers with an admiring crowd of supporters, we are clad in shorts and vests. The Maire is wearing a sober suit but my attention is drawn by his wife, a bold large-framed redhead in an extremely complicated outfit involving many layers, and fabrics.
