Day one (again)

Counter reset as we embark on a new trip. Day one, to Louroux de Bouble. A longer than usual leg for us on this first day, with a shopping trip in Montlucon along the way to fetch goodies from Grand Frais.

In honesty, a shorter trip would have been better. Dusty came in last night for a change (it was raining) and spent most of the night on our bed, frequently waking us up for attention.

He is of course now complaining that he has been kept in for /weeks/.

Noisy little beggar.

We are making good time on a familiar route, with low volume traffic. I am thankful that it is not too taxing for a tired driver.

Another half an hour to Montlucon then perhaps a further forty minutes to tonight’s CCP Aire. Should be parked up by afternoon coffee time if all continues well.

This is a test of post by mail
Perhaps it will serve us better than the failing IG: IFTTT posting method.

No pic with this.


Where were we?

I mean it; where were we?

Dusting off the blog today, doing necessary security updates etc. and was planning to put some flesh on the bones of our recent trips. What do I find but that a complete six week trip has gone missing, with both the Evernote location notes and the IG photo updates not having come through to here.

It looks as though I have a great deal of work to do!

In the meantime, you can find the short versions that should have copied across to this blog right here>>>

The location notes are simply vapour and I shall need to write up the entire itinerary.

Bridge over the Vienne at Availles-Limouzine

Just to fill in a bit: our latest jaunt was two nights in Availles-Limouzine (28/29 July) – more of which soon.

Setting off on our final leg. Fearing that when we reach Bellac the shelves will have been stripped bare before the midday travel rules come in. We shall see. At least the sun is shining. #wp #livereportingfromtheroad #france
