Next to the station

Saturday afternoon we took the train from Glion to Caux.
My godson fell asleep on the train and so did I.
Next to the station of Caux is a restaurant with a terrace overlooking the lake.
My godson’s mother ordered a plate of dried meat, I had goat cheese salad.
After lunch I told her my ideas for a new novel, the godson was still sleeping – I had the feeling I could stay in Caux forever.
