    We are currently parked up at Parc Verger's site

    We have now been in France for 17 days and only seen beautiful clear blue skies

    Yesterday Ken and Steph ( Kesbruce ) took us on a 30 mile ride down to Brantome which is heading out to Perigrueux. A more beautiful town is hard to imagine, the pictures i have posted hardly do it justice as the river that meandours through the town is absolutely gin clear and stuffed full of what I think were the French equivalent of chub.

    What is even more suprising is that the roads are quieter during the day than Blighty encounters at 3am on any Sunday, the parking is free and there is not a wisp of litter to be seen.

    just across the river from the picture of the waterwheel is an aire for 50 motorhomes at 4 euros per night

    I am sure France has problems that we cannot observe but oh boy could Blighty do with learning from them or is it way too late?

    I have to keep him on the move so that the dreaded Todmorden cloud can't find him. :Eeek:

    France is lovely scenic wise but I find it boring. Don't know why, I just do.
