That's a shame, but a slimmer Barfy will live longer, and have less knee trouble, and less gout.

Never mind about the cold beer Terry, I hope youre getting warmer temperatures than we are, it feels colder than winter with a biting wind and temperatures. only +6c, last week it was +19c.

Parked up at Neris Les Bains now, just south of Montlucon. Sitting out catching some rays,18 degrees.

Had a good run here except for a tailgating HGV driver, gave him a couple of opportunities to pass but he refused until I was following a cement tanker up a hill and tried to pass us both. He got up along side us but ran out of umph, then tried to force me to slow by indicating in. Eventually he had to fall back.

Tailgating resumed on a twisted section, I eventually passed the tanker he soon followed nearly colliding with an oncoming car. On the next straight I slowed right down to let the plonker pass, too young to die at the hands of a Spanish trucker.

The Aire we are on has the river to one side and a non electrified railway on the other side, but since yesterday when we arrived not one train has gone by ?

Terry
Yes very strange no trains passed while we were there also. If you walk back down the road & look through he trees on the left there are some very large fish.

Spain, next stop tomorrow is the Aire in La Canourgue just off the A75, north of Millau.

Then on to Narbonne on Sunday, before our destination Torredembarra on Monday.

La Canourgue Aire as planned, great run down from Neris Les Bains with blue skies and sunshine all the way.

Bit of a street party at the shop beside the Aire, tables on the pavement with a barbecue going, interestingly they also had two cows and a calf fenced in with barriers beside them ?? Bet they got nervous once the bardy was lit.

Nice dander up the town for a few beers and to bring back some nice French sticky pastries.
