Hi Joe, Did you get sorted with the motor bike and rack with the weight situation?

Glad you had a good week Joe. It's smashing round Cancale way. That whole northern coast
Of Brittany is nice.

Dead as a door nail here all of a sudden. Turfed up at Rocamadour in the Lot which is one of Frances most famous villages and there is nobody here. The Dordogne was fairly lively and busy last week and I thought it would be more so here but the field we are in which is a new edition has only one other van on it and the usual aire which is packed normally two vans.

Forecast is still good and getting better for the weekend when we will be back in the Dordogne. I really should be going home though!!

What's next Joe?

Hi Barry
Great your catching the last rays of sunshine,I hope it continues until you have to come home.
We are off to the Sth of France again at Easter.We spend a week with a friend near St Maxime,so all we have to do is work out which way to go and where to visit on the way back.
Really enjoyed Piriac btw,thanks for that suggestion!

I'm going to do a Cote D'Azure guide for motorhomers and scooterists Joe over the winter so may be done by Easter to include all the places we found and stayed. May be useful or you may already know the area well. The highlight feature will be the Kebab shop off the Square in St Tropez which we went back to several times.

Forecast still good but I dunno how long it can last. Back at Vitrac now on the Dordogne but may head to the coast and Ile D'Oleron next week Michelle's Grandad is buried there and its supposed to be good for cycling.

Even there a week ahead the forecast is sunny with highs of 18c which is ideal for cycling or walking.

Been really lucky this year with the weather, especially late on.

Hi Barry,Cant wait for your guide to the Cote D'Azure.We have been there many times,but we are always short on time so will be good to see the places you have found at your leisure.And will be good to read all about the places you have visited.
How long have you left before you have to be home?

Should have been home two weeks ago Joe but I forgot how far England is. My brain can only cope with doing 100 miles a week and most of that going around in circles. Some say there are autopistabn toll things that can get you home in hours but I've never found one. My sat nav just takes me down muddy lanes that end in geese farms.

I can live with that though.

I'll have to get home soon though as Teesdale will throw up the drawbridge for winter and I won't get back in.

I could live here though in the Dordogne, Lot or Lot et Garonne. I reckon d its a short winter

Barry, if you are in the Lot et Garonne - we are VERY near the Northern edge with the Dordogne....

BUT we don't have a muddy track leading to us 'cos the ;local Mairie drove up here along with 4 other "well-built" French wine lovers from the council and their car (a very old Renault) grounded in several places.....


three weeks later the whole road was resurfaced, so nice fairly smooth tarmac to us - of a standard that would not be found on many B or even sme A class roads in the UK as no-one ever wants to dig it up......

Thinking of ALL the front line staff working to try to help others;Doctors, nurses, paramedics, cleaners, NA's, catering staff, support services and all others. Their work is appreciated more than you can ever realise-keep strong and safe.

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
