France 2017

Another day with a hazy start, but by the time we left the cabin the sun was already out!


First stop was the village at Usse followed by a visit to the supermarkets at Bourgueil, where we stocked the boot with presseis for home, then on down to the river and a picnic.


We parked at La Chapelle-sur-Loire where we had had a picnic last year. The view across the river is a constantly moving vista of birds fish and frogs.


Rested it was on to La Motte and a walk around the village followed by a drink in the local hotel. As we walked back to the car we spent time watching and ‘teasing’ the local lizards. The larger of the lizards posed for their portraits, but soon lost interest!

Back in the car we returned to base and ate well.


The last of the sausages were accompanied by mushrooms and sautéed potatoes.


Once again we spent what remained of the evening with wine and books before bed.
