By the O2

It was a very hot day and though it was not a very long walk, we were ready for a drink and some food at the Café Rouge by the Dome.  

I always think about a cool cider towards the end of a long walk and the size of the glass tends to increase in size in my imagination, for once I was able to have some excellent cidre from Brittany, but only 330 ml.   The confit duck with plum sauce was very good too.
