Airvault Gallery

Yes, I am doing remarkably badly at the blog catchup thing but do not believe that I have no intention of filling the gaps. I just need time and space.

We have reached Airvault, apparently at the same time as Spring,  and are staying on a caravan site just outside the town. Nell is very happy here as there is ample off-the-lead walking for her and this in turn makes us happy too. Walks are a more pleasant task when the dog can run freely.

We are at Camping de Courte Vallèe, a former municipal site now owned by an English couple. The municipal leisure facilities here are a change from the usual swimming pool and football pitch neighbours. No, here we have a country park! Just out of the gate, a little way down a traffic free lane, and over the river and hey presto, doggy heaven.

After Nell’s morning walk today we ventured into town for lunch. It was raining but I took the camera anyway. Here are a few of the results.

We move on to Montmorillon tomorrow and then back to Lathus for a while. There is no hookup at Lathus so the  laptop will stay in the cupboard – no updates expected whilst we are there. Instagram is the best to be expected.

Three pm, best hour of the day. Picked up bread and pastries at the perfect little boulangerie at St Clement des Levées this morning before heading to our night stop. The Aire at the place where we had intended to stay was full so we hit the Autoroute once more and landed here in La Séguinière. Not even close to being full but basking in full sunshine – doors open, t-shirts on. There is a little river with ducks and geese, a BBQ for the use of, picnic tables and a bar across the road. Not too shabby.
