    Bit cloudy here in Millau today. Was very hot yesterday but a nice breeze. Forecast for next few days ok, but we are moving tomorrow a bit west to the Ardeche for a few days. Forecast good except for next Thursday.

    Don't go home, go South. :sun:

    Forecast really BAD for Brittany! It's going to rain in a few hours the equivalent of a month rain! Floods announced , so take the right decision: back home or down south est (Toulouse is under the rain too!)

    Dryish in Tuscany at the moment but still unsettled and likely to stay that way until next week.

    It was wetter yesterday.

    Well, so far this trip we have seen petrol stations closed, been stuck behind tractors and trailers stopping all traffic, we are near Tours and the rain has started.. In all fairness, just had 5 days at Parc Verger with beautiful weather and good company. Got the awning up before the rain, so quite sorted.

    Goats and fondue?
    Sounds like some wired satanic ritual

    Tunnel is booked for 24th June
    Destination is fluid at the moment as Mrs C doesn't 'do' rain and the weather forecast for Central Europe is looking pretty shabby

    Working on plan 'B'

    Maybe Croatia, Greece, Portugal or Northern Spain

    Wherever the sun is - we will follow

    Watch this space !

    If you do decide on Switzerland I'd recommend Interlaken we spent 3 days there and the place is stunning with loads to do and see, or just outside at Grindlewald loads of resturants to try.
    Just spent the day in Geneva and Mrs C would love the Prada shops although your wallet might think differently.
    We're currently in a lovely site at Neydens France just 10 mile from Geneva.
