Splurge

When you find out your favorite bakery is about to close for two weeks

These are an eclair au café, a chausson framboise, and une Jésuite (it has licorice flavor, Earl considers it a treat) 
The boulangerie stayed open throughout the season, tourist season that is, so now they’re taking a break. 
A »congé » the hand-written note explained. 
I asked a French waiter last night and he explained that a congé is a vacation but for a business. 
So two weeks relying on the peripheral bakeries. 
Tough life.
