France 2017

A grey morning and the weather forecast suggested it could be a showery day so…


On the road we stopped at a supermarket for supplies, spent a lot and bought not much, there wasn’t enough alcohol in the trolley to warrant the costs. This trip is seeming expensive with the Euro being roughly the same as the Pound, still.


Back in the road it was on to Saumur and an afternoon in the town.


Lunch was Bouef Borgignon, superb, apple tart for me and café gourmand for Val ( they only had one tart left)
