    @Margaret - It looks very relaxing that which you did...

    WOW! Teddles...Those are two lovely looking daughters you have - A lucky man you are...

    CD Thank you, and the third one is a looker as well.
    Mat, thanks for the help. For only £360 a week it was quite a bargan.. It will certainly be dearer next year when they have been advertising longer.

    The Millau Bridge which crosses the valley thereby avoiding the village of Millau. Worth a trip to the S of F just to see it. The best view is when heading South in the late afternoon, when the sun catches it from 90 degrees and it looks like a giant sailing ship.

    It was very relaxing CD, it is well worth a visit Teddy, lot's of riverside pubs and good places to eat.

    We have done canal cruising as well.

    That looks like a very interesting bridge, I do like France.

    Thanks again Mat
    Margaret. I found the canals very relaxing with the way that they often cut through deep country. Beautiful in the Spring with all the wild flowers along the towpath.

    The boat blew up? that must have been very scary. I have been on yachts, but I like a little comfort now.

    Yes the man took our money and waved I switched on the ignition and pushed the starter then one heck of a bang from the stern my wife's brother was standing on the stern board it blew him into the water and a bag of soft centered sweets were launched like missiles and splattered onto the nearby boats, I only have the old Kodak colour transparencies which I can't post as I do not have the software, ah those were the days

    ARGHHHHH. Just discovered that my favourite cottage in the SoF is full booked for the Summer. It was only the thought of it that was getting me through this miserable, cold, wet Winter. Suddenly suicide seems like a viable option.

    Just had another nervous breakdown and booked a little cottage in the S of F. Just us and a ten metre saltwater heated swimming pool. I will definitely come back wrinkly.



    The view from the terrace. My idea of heaven
