Loire Valley

Well we are away again. Down to the Loire valley and a wonderful campsite
 Terre D'Entente at Saint Martin de la Place. Right on the river bank.


We were just down the road from Saumur and had a lovely day cycling down the North side of the river into the town and back along the south bank. The villages and Chateau along the way were lovely. 

We stopped to rest in the park and admire the wild life. !!!!!
 We finally reached Saumur centre where we visited The Chateau. It is beautifully set overlooking the river and we had a drink at the local bar whilst we got over the climb up the hill.
Some of us do not have electric bikes.
We then had great difficulty finding our way across the river, indeed we had trouble finding the river to cross it. Anyway we got back to the campsite. 

On our way back Sarah had a puncture and we had to keep stopping to inflate the tyre. when we arrived at the camp, we both needed to cool off and had a swim in the Loire. You could not go forwards because of the current so you just swam against it like In a wave pool.

A really wonderful rest stop.


Summer in the UK

Well we have had a great Summer in the UK visiting all our Family and our friends.
Lots of time in Wales laying land drains and building driveways, chopping down trees and all the usual fun.
Grandchildren growing up quickly and making it OK to do childish things again.
Now on our way south again for the winter.
Here are just a few memorable shots from a wonderfully sunny UK.
