    Hi All
    Just a quickie
    We're now just south of Biarritz in a fantastic area and we've finally found some sunshine. Probably going to stay here 4 days before moving on down towards Algeceris.
    We trashed the motorbike rack getting on the ferry and will have to do a repair in Spain if Ray knows someone.
    Stayed in the grounds of a chateau in Normandy and visited Bayeux the beaches & cemetries.
    Then 2 days in the Loire valley it was gorgeous definitly going back.
    Travelling has'nt been too bad except today we took a wrong turn and ended up driving the Rv through Bayonne centre and Biarittz centre:Eeek:. RV's are not made for that type of road and I needed a few beers to cool down.
    Thats all for now, keep in touch when we can.

    Hi Rory & Jan,

    Shame about the bike rack. Did you ground the rack on the way up the ramp?
    Have you not got a "ferry lift" on them there RVs?
    All that dosh, and no ferry lift. :Eeek::Eeek::Eeek:

    Have a great time, and I hope that the rest of your "big trip" goes unhindered.

    Safe travels,

    Jock.

    No problem Rory........As Geo says, I have a welder [but not good at sticking bits together if they require long-term use].

    However, we do have an "Expert" and Workshop on hand.........We can sort it if you are meeting us at La Cruz de Piedra and give us time.

    I will phone you today.......
